Given Msimango in action for TS Galaxy.

A former Kaizer Chiefs player believes Given Msimango and Mduduzi Mdantsane would make a big difference at Kaizer Chiefs, with the players expected to join Amakhosi next season. 

The Siya crew recently reported that the Soweto giants were keen on trying their luck yet again to sign the players, having made an effort in the past. Amakhosi were keen on acquiring Msimango from TS Galaxy last season and made an effort to sign Cape Town City's Mdantsane during the recently closed January transfer window, but both moves did not materialise.

Determined to bolster their squad for next season, it appears there are agreements in place for the players to make moves to Naturena next season.

Isaac Mabotsa, a former Amakhosi right back, seems to be most excited about the prospect of Msimango forming part of the back four.

"If it's true, that would be a good signing for the team. I spoke to one guy, about two seasons back, regarding Msimango from TS Galaxy. I was saying it would be a good signing because I've been praying for Chiefs to sign Msimango. There are rumours that Chiefs won't renew (Mulomowandau) Mathoho's contract and it's just unfortunate that his progress was slowed down by injuries and age is also not on his side. So, the signing of Msimango would be a good one for Kaizer Chiefs," Mabotsa said to the Siya crew. 

In attack, Mabotsa feels that Mdantsane would make a positive impact in a number 10 role, especially because Khama Billiat is struggling with injury and possibly heading out of Naturena with his contract expires in June.

"With Mdantsane, the boy has been proving himself season after season. He is a quality player. We need that quality in the team in terms of a number 10. If you check, Billiat has been out for some time. I would definitely be happy if these two players join Chiefs." 

The Soweto giants will welcome Botswana national team captain Thatayaone Ditlhokwe, who has penned a pre-contract with Amakhosi. He will be a Chiefs player from July onwards as he wraps up the season with SuperSport United.
