PSL Free Agents: Jali, Billiat, Ofori
An unprecedented number of top players will be available on a Bosman transfer come the end of the campaign.

Numerous big names are now entering the final five months of their contracts with PSL clubs and are free to sign pre-contracts with clubs of their choice.

Will they run down their deals or will they sign contract extensions?

GOAL took a look at the top PSL players who are available on a pre-contract.

  • Khama Billiat of Kaizer Chiefs.

    The 2015/16 PSL Footballer of the Year remains a regular in the Kaizer Chiefs team having entered the final five months of the two-year deal that he signed at the end of the 2020-21 term. 
    Billiat, 32, is reportedly among the highest-paid players at Amakhosi and it remains to be seen whether the club will hand him another contract extension.

  • Denis Onyango, Mamelodi Sundowns, October 2021

    Denis Onyango

    The Mamelodi Sundowns captain signed a four-and-a-half-year deal in February 2019 when he was at the top of his game as the club's first-choice goalkeeper. 
    That deal is set to expire at the end of the season and the 37-year-old is now serving as the second-choice keeper behind Williams with his future at the club uncertain.

  • Andile Jali, Mamelodi Sundowns, August 2022

    Andile Jali

    The reigning PSL Midfielder of the Season signed a five-year deal when he moved to Mamelodi Sundowns from Belgian side KV Oostende in 2018. 

    Jali, 32, is one of Sundowns' most influential players, but the club has allowed his deal to enter its final five months and he has been linked with AmaZulu FC, Kaizer Chiefs and Orlando Pirates.

    Contract renewal talks between Jali's agency, Prosport International, and Sundowns are ongoing.

  • Erick Mathoho, Kaizer Chiefs, November 2022

    Erick Mathoho

    The veteran defender has become a forgotten man due to his lack of game time since Kaizer Chiefs coach Arthur Zwane took charge of the team with several centre-backs preferred ahead of him. 
    The three-year deal that Mathoho, 32, signed during the 2019-20 season is set to expire this June and Chiefs must make a decision regarding the loyal defender's future.

  • Ghana and Orlando Pirates keeper Richard Ofori.

    Richard Ofori

    The Ghana international's contract has surprisingly been allowed to enter its final eight months despite being Orlando Pirates' first-choice keeper and vice-captain. 
    However, Ofori, who was signed by the Buccaneers on a three-year deal in 2020, has struggled with injuries and the club will have to make a decision regarding his future soon.

  • Itumeleng Khune Kaizer Chiefs.

    Itumeleng Khune

    The current season has seen the Kaizer Chiefs captain re-cement his place in the team's starting line-up as the number one goalkeeper, but he was recently dropped to second-choice keeper due to poor form.
    Khune, who signed a two-year extension in 2021, could be handed a new deal as coach Arthur Zwane has repeatedly spoken about the 35-year-old's importance in the squad as a leader and quality keeper.
