We have extended Siphosakhe Ntiya-Ntiya’s contract until 30 June 2023.
His contract was due to expire on 30 June 2020, but the Club has opted to review and improve the current contract and sign a new one until June 2023. https://t.co/HM4JSSJMD8#Amakhosi4Life pic.twitter.com/z6AJh89avt
Ntiya-Ntiya was promoted from the club's youth ranks two seasons ago while Steve Komphela was still at the club.
He quickly made his presence felt in the elite league soon after his promotion to the senior team, and he was a regular in Komphela's final season in charge.
The Bizana-born player played a part in Amakhosi's 1-0 win over Black Leopards last weekend, making his return to the starting line-up after missing the opening match against Highlands Park two weeks ago.
Overall, Ntiya-Ntiya has made 28 appearances across all competitions for Chiefs since the 2017/18 season with 22 of those matches coming in the league.
At one stage, Ntiya-Ntiya had to compete with Godfrey Walusimbi and Letlhogonolo Mirwa for a place in the Chiefs starting line-up.
He became the club's preferred left-back soon after the departure of Walusimbi.
