Kaizer Chiefs have announced that they've parted ways with goalkeeper Luthando Sixhaso.
The lanky shot-stopper spent the first half of the campaign at Cape Town All Stars where he was on a season-long loan deal.
The Club has reached mutual agreement on the termination of Luthando Sixhaso's contract. He is now free to join a team of his choice. We thank him for his service and wish him well on his future endeavours.

Sixhaso joined Amakhosi in 2015 after impressing for the Ke Yona team, but he struggled to break into the first team and the club decided to send him out on loan to the National First Division.
He featured just once for Cape Town All Stars this seaosn in the 1-0 win over Real Kings in November 2017.
The departure of Sixhaso could force the Glamour Boys to add another goalkeeper to their ranks in the upcoming season, especially with Brilliant Khuzwayo also on his way out at the club.
Khuzwayo's representative, Tim Sukazi, who also represents Sixhaso, confirmed earlier this week that his client won't stay at the Soweto giants beyond the expiry of his current contract in June 2018.
The fact that Itumeleng Khune is on form has made it almost impossible for the two goalkeepers to be guaranteed regular game time.
The 30-year-old captain has kept 10 cleansheets so far this season, and he remains one of the integral members of the Amakhosi squad.
With Sixhaso now gone and Khuzwayo leaving at the end of the season, Bruce Bvuma will be expected to deputize for Khune from time to time in the new campaign unless an experienced goalkeeper comes in when July/August transfer window opens.
Currently, Steve Komphela has Khune, Khuzwayo, Bvuma and the young Brylon Petersen at his disposal.
