Itumeleng Khune and Kaizer Chiefs finally reach agreement

South Africa's No.1 goalkeeper signs on at his childhood club after a drawn out contract drama as he reaches an agreement with the Soweto Giants

Goal has learnt that out of contract goalkeeper Itumeleng Khune has finally put pen to paper at Kaizer Chiefs.

A source close to the Soweto Giants has confirmed that all matters at hand have been resolved and that Bafana Bafana’s No.1 will be back with the Amakhosi for the 2015/16 season.

The drawn-out transfer saga appears to have finally come to an end and it now seems that both parties have resolved their differences.

As far as Goal is aware this will not effect the line-ups for the Carling Black Label Cup but it remains to be seen whether or not Khune will be on the bench.

It will be good news with Chiefs coach Steve Komphela, who is known to be good friends with the goalkeeper.

Amakhosi have since confirmed that they have reached an agreement with Khune, and that the 28-year-old Ventersdorp-born star will be returning to the club. 

"The club has reached an agreement in principle with goalkeeper Itumeleng Khune and he will be joining us. Some internal procedures still need to take place though and the deal will be 100% finalized," reads a statement from the Naturena-based outfit.

Meanwhile, talks between the club and Mandla Masango are ongoing, and according to the Glamour Boys, announcement will be made in due course.  

"Mandla Masango's talks with the Club are still ongoing and we will update you," the statement said.
