Chiefs to unveil Mathoho
Kaizer Chiefs are expecting to secure the transfer of Bloemfontein Celtic defender Erick Mathoho on Thursday.
The AmaKhosi have long been on the trail of the Bafana Bafana centre-back, fighting a bitter battle with Sundowns for his services.
Although The Brazilians have stumped up more cash, the player is set on Chiefs and Celtic have now agreed to sell him to Naturena.
"We have agreed with Celtic and they have promised to finish up all the paperwork by the end of the day [Wednesday]. This is the last deal that we wanted to do," Chiefs football manager Bobby Motaung told Sowetan.
Mathoho will partner Morgan Gould, who cost R5-million from SuperSport United, in Chiefs' new-look central defence next season.
The club have already also signed Siboniso Gaxa, Sakhile Hlongwa, Nhlanhla Khuzwayo and Siyabonga Nkosi.
