Kaizer Chiefs close to sign Tokelo Rantie

Kaizer Chiefs are on the radar to acquire the services of top talented footballers for the upcoming 2016/2017 season. The Amakhosi as they are known to the football fraternity, are determined to get the services of Tokelo who is currently in the books of English Premier League side AFC Bournemouth.

Chiefs are doing their best to sign top class players for the new season. They are aware of the past mistakes they made where they signed a lot of average players who failed to impress the Chiefs technical team in all aspects. The fans were very disappointed with the players signed by Chiefs in the past season. A lot of players were free agents, meaning Chiefs management used the advantage of signing those players free of charge, forgetting the impact those players will have on the team as a whole.

Rantie was disappointed with the way things turned out at AFC Bournemouth as he was not given enough chance to prove himself. The Bafana Bafana striker was not even registered to play for the second round of the English Premier League by his own team AFC Bournemouth. The player is tired of the situation at his English side. He is ready to look for a new challenge somewhere else where he will be afforded game time. He has been part of the Bafana setup and scoring goals against top opponents of world football including 2 goals against Nigeria, but to his surprise it was not enough to be afforded a chance to prove his worth at the English Premiership side.

Tokelo’s move to Kaizer Chiefs would be a good one, considering that Chiefs are rebuilding their squad after a disappointing season. The player will first look in to available teams in Europe who would like to give him a chance first before considering a comeback to the Premiers Soccer League (PSL). Tokelo was part of the Pirates squad in the PSL alongside Benni Mccarthy. His return to the PSL with Kaizer Chiefs would be a perfect move for his career which would also help him to revive his Bafana position as we would be playing regularly for Chiefs.

The player is currently discussing the possibility of terminating his contract with AFC Bournemouth. If all goes according to his plans, he will be free to join a club of his choice and Kaizer Chiefs is one of them. The Chiefs management are aware of the situation and are currently doing everything they can to sign Tokelo Rantie after his contract termination with his English side. Tokelo’s contract with Bournemouth is left with a year to go as it will expire in June 2017.

Chiefs’ fans are waiting to hear the good news about their team signing Tokelo Rantie. They cannot wait any longer for the good news to be announced. The move will be good for Chiefs as Tokelo is one of the best players in the country. He has proved to be one of the best players a lot of times. We cannot wait to have players like Tokelo in the PSL again. He will add value to the league as a whole.
