And it has now been revealed that Mmodi is in Gauteng, having signed a lucrative three-year contract with Kaizer Chiefs, keeping him at Naturena until at least June 2025.

The 30-year-old Mmodi showcased exceptional skills and was one of the standout performers for Golden Arrows last season. 

Mmodi refused Pirates move

Mmodi’s impressive form caught the attention of Chiefs rivals Orlando Pirates, who had expressed interest in signing him the previous year. 

He however opted against the move, reportedly citing concerns about potential competition and limited playing opportunities due to the big number of similar players in the Pirates squad.

Sources close to the situation confirmed Mmodi’s absence from Arrows training and the surprising news of his signing with Kaizer Chiefs. 

The source revealed that Mmodi has committed to a three-year deal with the prestigious club, known for its rich football history and passionate fanbase.

“Yes he was not at training today. I heard the guys say he was with Chiefs where he has signed for three years,” said the source.
