Shabba, who joined Amakhosi in 2007, has been an integral part of Steve Komphela's team with three goals and three assists in 16 appearances this term

Goal can exclusively reveal that Kaizer Chiefs are yet to open contract negotiations with Siphiwe Tshabalala

The veteran midfielder is nearing the expiry of his current deal with Amakhosi, but a source within the club, says everyone is relaxed over the future of Shabba. 

In January 2015, Shabba penned a three-year deal which had an inclusive clause to renew for a further year.

The Glamour Boys triggered the clause in February this year, rewarding Shabba for his immense contribution over the past few seasons.       

"No, nothing has been discussed at this stage, but everyone is relaxed, even the player himself is not worried. The two parties will open talks when the time is right. So, there's no cause for concern," the source told Goal

The 33-year-old has been with the Soweto giants for over a decade now, and he's currently the oldest player in the current squad.

However, he continues to play with the same hunger and determination whenever he's given the chance to wear the famous gold and black jersey of Amakhosi. 

Chiefs will hope to tie down Shabba before it's too late to avoid losing him the same way they lost both Tefu Mashamaite and Reneilwe Letsholonyane in 2015 and 2016 respectively.
