Kaizer Chiefs have confirmed that seven players will be leaving the club with long-serving Willard Katsande included on the list.
On what was a busy day at Naturena, Chiefs confirmed the signings of Keagan Dolly and Cole Alexander before announcing the extension of five senior players in Itumeleng Khune, Khama Billiat, Bernard Parker, Lebogang Manyama and Ramahlwe Mphahlele.
With Chiefs having now brought in 10 new players as a part of their overhaul following a two-window transfer ban, there was always going to be departures.
The Soweto giants have now confirmed that seven players are set to leave the club this window with Willard Katsande and Kgotso Moleko, who both served over 10-years at Naturena both not offered new deals, while Philani Zulu and Brylon Pietersen also saw their deals run down.
Meanwhile, Siphosakhe Ntiya-Ntiya, Lazarous Kambole and Yagan Sasman will all be place on the transfer list.
