Siphesihle Mkhize, a midfielder currently on loan at Sekhukhune United, is attracting interest from another big team. The Siya source expressed the dilemma faced by Sekhukhune United, stating that the player had just joined from Sundowns but now there is interest from a bigger club. The source pondered whether to let him grow and develop at Sekhukhune United or to allow him to play for a bigger club. However, the source acknowledged that every player wants to grow quickly and play for a bigger club. At present, there are only inquiries and nothing concrete to report. The source believed that Mkhize, who is 24 years old, has a great future, whether it is at Sekhukhune or at Chiefs.
A second Siya source mentioned that Chiefs may also be interested in Mkhize for their squad and he could be a future prospect. There is uncertainty regarding the timing of Chiefs’ interest, whether it will be in January or at the end of the season. The source noted that Chiefs have been observing Mkhize since the beginning of the season, and it remains to be seen what will happen once the transfer window closes.
Mkhize, a product of Sundowns’ youth set-up, joined Sekhukhune United at the start of the season. He has played 10 games in the DStv Premiership league, accumulating a total of 818 minutes on the pitch. Additionally, he has appeared five times in the Caf Confederation Cup and twice in the Carling Knockout. Prior to his loan at Sekhukhune United, Mkhize had loan spells at Chippa United and Cape Town Spurs (when they were still known as Ajax Cape Town).
Soccer Laduma reached out to both Chiefs and Sekhukhune United for comment, but no response was received at the time of preparing this story.
