New Kaizer Chiefs midfielder Dillon Solomons should continue to stay humble and be disciplined as he has been throughout the season according to former teammate at Swallows, Musa Nyatama.

The 26-year-old is one of the players who have been signed by Amakhosi in their bid to challenge for silverware in the forthcoming campaign.

Solomons made 22 Premier Soccer League appearances for the Dube Birds, scoring four goals in the process.

"My advice would be for him to continue to stay humble and be disciplined as he has been throughout the season," Nyatama said as quoted by Sowetan.

"Also, what I like about him is his versatility. He is very versatile, and can play left and right-wing at the back. So, my advice for him would be to continue to be disciplined and be dedicated to his work."

At Chiefs, the pressure from the fans will be more as opposed to his former team.

However, the veteran Swallows midfielder insists Solomons will know how to handle it.

"Dealing with the fans it’s a difficult one, but I’m sure he has been there," Nyatama continued.

"Throughout his career, he has been dealing with the fans from Cape Town and Johannesburg. But for him, he must just stay humble."

Meanwhile, Chiefs have confirmed defenders Ramahlwe Mphahlele and Siphosakhe Ntiya-Ntiya will not be part of their squad next season.

The 32-year-old Mphahlele joined Chiefs in 2016 from Mamelodi Sundowns and in the 2020/21 campaign, he made 15 PSL appearances for the club, scoring a goal and providing an assist.

His contract will expire at the end of July and the club opted not to extend it.

However, there was no reason given by the club regarding the decision to part ways with Ntiya-Ntiya.

The defender was promoted to the senior team in 2018 and debuted for the club on January 6 the same year in the match against SuperSport United.

The versatile defender played 54 competitive matches for the Glamour Boys including the 2019 Nedbank Cup and Caf Champions League finals.
