Maritzburg United yet to hear from Kaizer Chiefs regarding William Twala, says Farook Kadodia

The Team of Choice are looking to finalize a deal for the out-of favour Amakhosi winger before the transfer window closes on Wednesday night

Maritzburg United have confirmed their interest in signing Kaizer Chiefs winger William Twala on loan for the remainder of the season.

The Team of Choice have been hard at work bolstering their squad as they look to consolidate their position in the top eight. They have already brought in defender Bokang Tlhone from Bidvest Wits, and now they are looking to add another attacker to their already formidable arsenal.

But while an approach has been made for Twala, according to club boss Farook Kadodia, they are still waiting on a decision from Chiefs with time running out in the current transfer window.

Clubs have until Wednesday midnight to finalise all the deals, and this could potentially go down to the wire as both sides hackle over the future of the former Chippa United player.

“I spoke to Chiefs regarding Twala’s services two weeks ago. We are looking for at least a loan deal, but they have yet to get back to me,” Kadodia told Daily Sun.

“I’m hopeful, though, that they will get back to me and that we will have him before the transfer window closes,” he added.

Twala was previously believed to have been on the radar of Free State Stars in a move which would have seen Sinethemba Jantjie join Chiefs, but the winger rejected the move.

Nonetheless, this isn’t the first time that Maritzburg have been interested in one of the Soweto giant’s players.

It was previously reported that the club was eager to bring out-of-favour playmaker Keagan Buchanan to the club, but that ship has since sailed as they have abandoned their interest in him, and have switched their attention in the direction of the 27-year-old former Orlando Pirates midfielder.

Nevertheless, it remains to be see whether or not Chiefs will agree to a deal for Twala’s services before the window closes.
