Absa Premiership giants Kaizer Chiefs are considering an offer for Bloemfontein Celtic midfielder Kabelo Mahlasela, KickOff.com can reveal.
Mahlasela has been a consistent perfomer in midfield for Phunya Sele Sele this season, with his performances catching the eye of Chiefs coach Steve Komphela.
The 26-year-old has a contract with Celtic until June 2018, meaning Chiefs would have to pay a fee for the former Orlando Pirates development star.
Yes, it’s true, it seems Steve [Komphela] called Mahlasela to find out about the situation with his contract,” a source said. “Now that they know, an offer will be made to the club for the player very soon.”
Mahlasela joined Celtic at the start of the 2015/16 season having not kicked a ball in anger for Pirates. He was immediately sent on loan to National First Division side Royal Eagles, where he had previously spent two seasons on loan before.
He has made 21 appearances in all competitions for Celtic this season, netting two goals in the process.
