Goal can exclusively confirm that Kaizer Chiefs are in talks with Mpumalanga Black Aces for the services of midfielder Thabo Qalinge.

A source within the AmaKhosi camp told Goal that the club has tabled a formal offer for Qalinge, and that they're now waiting for Aces to make the deal happen.

"The offer has been tabled already. The two teams had a brief meeting last week and it's now up to Aces to make the deal happen because the player is still contracted to them," the source told Goal. 

According to the source, there could be a player involved in the deal to try and reduce a fee reported to be around R5 million for the attacking player.

However, it is still early to predict what's going to happen in the next few days, as talks are still at an early stage between the two parties.

"One of our players could move to Aces permanently as part of the deal, but it's too early to predict if the two teams will agree to that," added the source.
