Goal has been informed that Mamelodi Sundowns striker Katlego "Killer" Mphela may join Chiefs earlier than expected
Mphela signed a pre-contract with Kaizer Chiefs and the former Bafana star is supposed to join the champions in June.
However after being left behind by Sundowns on their trip to Zambia, it seems the Naturena side are negotiating for an early release of the striker, according to a Goal source at Sundowns.
"Chiefs want to have him before the close of the window period on January 31. After losing Majoro to Pirates they only have three main strikers in Bernard Parker, Knowledge Musona and Kingston Nkhatha," the source revealed to Goal.
"That's why they need Mphela as soon as they can. It will however depend on Sundowns if they want to release Killer before June. But they haven't been using him a lot so it seems it can happen," said the Goal insider.
