A potential player swap between Kaizer Chiefs and AmaZulu is on the horizon in the upcoming transfer window, according to information gathered by the 45min.
Previous reports from this publication indicated discussions surrounding a January move for Siphesihle Maduna to Chiefs. Maduna, seemingly out of favor at AmaZulu and unlikely to extend his stay beyond the current season, may be heading to Gauteng.
The latest updates reaching the 45min suggest that negotiations are underway for a deal involving Maduna moving to Chiefs and Siyethemba Sithebe making a return to KwaZulu-Natal from Naturena. This potential exchange marks a significant turnaround for Sithebe, the dreadlocked midfielder who joined Amakhosi in July last year amid a well-documented fallout with Usuthu management. Sithebe had previously signed a pre-contract with the Soweto giants in January.
Insiders have shared with the 45min that Sithebe has been forgiven by AmaZulu, and discussions are progressing positively for his return to the KZN giants. The source emphasized the forgiving nature of football, stating, “There are no permanent enemies in football, and don’t be surprised if Sithebe goes back to AmaZulu. No one is holding a grudge against him. It’s something that has been discussed, and with Chiefs likely to sign Maduna, Sithebe could go the opposite direction.”
Sithebe, 30, has notably been absent from the line-ups at Chiefs since making his sole appearance this season in the second game in August against Mamelodi Sundowns. As negotiations unfold, the possibility of this player swap adds an intriguing dynamic to the upcoming transfer window, showcasing the fluid nature of football relationships and team compositions.
