Former Mamelodi Sundowns midfielder, Sibusiso Kumalo is close to making a move to Kaizer Chiefs, according to a source close to the player.

Kumalo left Masandawana last year as he felt he needed to be challenged elsewhere after failing to break into Pitso Mosimane’s team.

“His people met with Chiefs earlier this week and tabled their demands and they are now awaiting Amakhosi to accept or make a counter-offer and then they can take it from there. But from what I heard, it looks very promising and a deal could be struck very soon.

The source further claimed that Kumalo is seen as a perfect replacement for George Maluleka who joined Sundowns from Chiefs recently.
