Kaizer Chiefs negotiate exit deals for Keagan Buchanan and William Twala

Buchanan has managed a mere three appearances so far this season, while Twala last featured for Amakhosi in September 2016 against Baroka FC

Kaizer Chiefs football manager Bobby Motaung has confirmed that they have engaged both Keagan Buchanan and William Twala over their futures at the club.

The two midfielders have struggled for game time under Steve Komphela, and there has been talk that they could be loaned out for the remainder of the campaign. 

Buchanan still has a year left on his contract with Amakhosi, while Twala's contract is coming to an end at the of the season. 

"I have engaged their agents [Buchanan and Twala] in terms of trying to find a solution because they are not playing, which is a concern because they are quality players," Motaung told the media. 

While Maritzburg United went public about their interest in Buchanan, Motaung revealed that the KwaZulu Natal-based team has not approached Chiefs for the services of former Bloemfontein Celtic.  

“Maritzburg have made a statement that they want Keagan, but they have not negotiated with us. It’s just a matter of time, but we will see what moves happen before the end of the window,” said Motaung.

Twala turned down the opportunity to join Free State Stars, while a proposed deal to Baroka failed materialize, but according to his agent, Tim Sukazi, a possible move to Maritzburg is on the cards.  

Motaung went further to reveal that the majority of players don't want to leave Chiefs, even when they're not regulars. 

“I don’t know what it is, but players don’t want to leave Chiefs. Even players that we have asked to consider being loaned out don’t want to leave. It just feels painful for them to leave,” Motaung said.
