Xulu has been struggling for regular game time since joining Chiefs, and his agent tells Goal that they have been giving him all the support he needs

Goal can exclusively reveal that Siyanda Xulu has no plans to leave Kaizer Chiefs but to fight and push his name forward for selection.

Xulu, who returned from Europe at the beginning of last season, has struggled to adapt to his life at Naturena, and hasn’t featured prominently over the last two years under Steve Komphela.

However, his agent, Paul Mitchell of Siyavuma Sports Group, said while his lack of game time is a major concern, the 25-year-old intends to stay on and win his place back.

The former Bafana Bafana centre-back was transfer-listed by the club at the end of last season following what was a disastrous first season at the club.

He was later removed from the transfer list, as Komphela gave him another chance to impress the technical team.

But since then, Xulu has managed a single appearance for the Glamour Boys.

“For now Siyanda like the rest of the squad, is working hard in training to push his name forward for selection,” Mitchell told Goal.

“It would be great to see him playing regularly; Siyanda is working hard and is confident in his ability,” he continued.

“Like always, we are in regular contact and support him in every way, ongoing reviews are always a big part of all players’ careers, it is no different with Siyanda,” Mitchell concluded.
