A source at Kaizer Chiefs has revealed that leftback Tsepo Masilela's hopes of getting his contract renewed are very slim.

He has suffered with injuries in the last couple of years and has only made two appearances for Amakhosi this season, having sustained an injury last year.

“I honestly don’t see him at Chiefs next season. He has been out for a long time and now there are already players in his position. Another thing that might not work for him is because he is quite old.

“At his age, with his injuries, it really gets tough because he will take time to heal and the young players are coming in real quick,” said the source. Masilela joined Amakhosi in 2012 after coming back from Spain where he was playing for Getafe.
