Kaizer Chiefs have reportedly offered midfielder Wiseman Meyiwa a professional contract. 

The 17-year-old recently returned from the U20 Africa Cup of Nations (Afcon) tournament with Amajita where they finished fourth.  

Amakhosi saw the need to offer the dribbling wizard the professional contract, especially after impressing in the MultiChoice Diski Challenge (MDC) this season. 

Meyiwa has also been linked with a possible move to Guinea, with Horoya AC reportedly interested in the midfielder's services.

According to reports, Horoya wanted to sign Meyiwa on a six-month loan deal from the Glamour Boys. 

However, it is unclear at this stage whether or not Horoya have submitted their bid to Chiefs. 

Meyiwa has already been training with the firstt team under the watchful of Steve Komphela, and the Amakhosi head coach appears to be happy with he has seen in the player.

Chiefs promoted a few of their academy players in the last two seasons, but none of them have been able to break into the first team.
