thumbnail Hello,

Goal can confirm that the young AmaKhosi striker Sakhile Hlongwa could be loaned out to Thanda Royal Zulu for the new season

Kaizer Chiefs striker Sakhile Hlongwa could soon be playing his football in KwaZulu Natal again, as Thanda Royal Zulu are reportedly interested in signing him.

The player’s agent Tim Sukazi confirmed to Goal that the two clubs are still negotiating over a possible loan deal since Hlongwa is still contracted to Chiefs.

“Sakhile is still a Kaizer Chiefs player, but Thanda has come forward and they want to have him on loan,” Sukazi told Goal.

“The two teams are busy negotiating, but it really looks like he will be allowed to go to Thanda and get some game time,” he said.

The 18-year-old striker found it very hard to break into the AmaKhosi starting line-up, and spent the whole of last season playing in the reserve league.

Hlongwa was signed at the beginning of last season together with the likes of Morgan Gould, Siboniso Gaxa and Eric Mathoho.

He also had an opportunity to play against Orlando Pirates in the 2011 Nedbank Cup semi-final while still at Ethekwini Coastal.
