Chabalala is the only outfield player in Bucs’ current squad, who is yet to get a chance to play under coach Milutin Sredojevic so far this season.


Since December, the defender’s representative Ratshibvumo Mulovhedzi had been planning on having discussions with Pirates about the 27-year-old centre-back’s future, but so far the Rush Hour Sports Management’s agent has been unsuccessful in his attempts, according to sources in the know.


“Justice Chabalala and his camp have not yet met with Pirates or spoken to the club about the player’s future or his situation at the club.” The player’s contract with Pirates ends in June and there have been no discussions that have taken place up to this point,” said the source.

However, Kaizer Chiefs have taken a bold step towards signing the defender with over R4 million according to reports that surfaced on the media today.

The Player and his agent would soon be meeting with Pirates management this weekend as they look forward to cement the deal before the January transfer comes to an end.
