As part of their preparation for next season, Amakhosi have decided to end their two-year relationship with Jayiya

Kaizer Chiefs have officially parted ways with midfielder Bhongolethu Jayiya.

Jayiya joined Amakhosi on a free transfer after leaving Cape Town City last season. 

However, he failed to command a regular place in the club's starting line-up, forcing the management to terminate his contract.

Last week, reports emerged that Jayiya was on his way out of the club but this couldn't be confirmed at the time as both sides were still negotiating a settlement. 

On Tuesday afternoon, Chiefs took to their social media platforms to announce Jayiya's departure from the club while wishing well in his future endeavours.

Jayiya becomes the fifth player to leave the Soweto giants in recent weeks following in the footsteps of Hendrick Ekstein, Gustavo Paez, Khotso Malope and Virgil Vries.

The Soweto-born midfielder managed 20 appearances across all competitions for the Glamour Boys and registered just three assists without finding the back of the net. 

And the club felt his contribution wasn't enough for him to stay for the upcoming season.

With his contract now terminated, Jayiya can focus on finding himself a new team that would fit his style of play more going forward. 

Jayiya is a well-travelled player, who has played for Bidvest Wits, Maritzburg United and Cape Town City among other PSL teams in the past.
