The return of Kaizer Chiefs legendary sensation to Naturena has been confirmed by agent ahead of January transfer window.

On-loan defender Lorenzo Gordinho is set to return to Chiefs after a successful loan spell under Steve Komphela at Blomfontein Celtic.

Gordinho had requested from Celtic to return to Chiefs from his loan early in June, however, Celtic refused to release him, prompting a war of words between Chiefs and Celtic.

His representative, Mike Makaab says Gordinho confirmed that Gordinho’s loan spell at Celtic ends on December 31.

“Correct – he’s going back to Kaizer Chiefs‚” Makaab told TimesLIVE.

“Listen‚ he’s been very happy at Celtic‚ but he certainly does want to go back to Chiefs.”
