Kaizer Chiefs are reportedly keen on keeping fan-favourite Leglohonolo Matlou at the club.
The midfielder joined the club at the beginning of last season from Swallows FC and his current contract comes to a close in June 2024.
Matlou will be eligible to sign a pre-contract elsewhere from December onwards and the Glamour Boys are reportedly looking to avoid that situation by securing his future at the club!
According to reports, Chiefs have tabled a new and improved two-year deal to Matlou and both parties are keen on concluding the deal in the coming weeks.
KAIZER CHIEFS OFFER MATLOU NEW CONTRACT
“The technical team is happy with his attitude and performance this season and they are the ones who have recommended that he be kept at the team for at least a further year.” a source told SoccerLaduma.

“Who wouldn’t be?” Comitis told Radio2000 as quoted by IdiskiTimes regarding his interest in signing ex Kaizer Chiefs star Khama Billiat.
“I think he’s 33-years-old now. And ja. You never say no to a player like that. I’m not sure what his intentions are at the moment. But it’s a good one to think about.
“Who’s speaking to you now from my club? Just remember, I brought Khama from Zimbabwe to South Africa when I was at Ajax, remember that? So I know what Khama’s all about.”
