Great piece of business from the Kaizer Chiefs management, we’ve been heavily linked with a top-class striker in the form of Ashley we wanted to sign him before the beginning of this season but we were not able to land his signature.
As a result, we have struggled a lot this season because in 80 percent of our games we didn’t have a recognized number 9 leading our attack.
The transfer window is not yet open but already we’ve been active and signed a few top-class players.
He is young and speedy 24 years old, he got a national call up while playing for the smaller team he is the reason why Stellenbosch has been a very difficult team to collect positive results.
Our management has activated the buy-out clause in the contract of Ashley Du Preez right now all we need to do is to agree on terms with the player.
We struggled a lot to sign him, he is one of the greatest strikers of his generation he is a complete attacker, we wanted to involve Happy Mashiane in the deal but then our sporting director was able to make available funds to activate his buy out clause.
He has incredible fitness levels, he played 30 games this season and he scored 9 goals and registered two assists. All of his goals came up in open play now imagine a player of his class next season in the field of play with the likes of Keegan Lorenzo Dolly who is the greatest playmaker in the league by a mile.
He is going to improve his numbers a lot because he is going to be playing with better players, after all, we waited for almost a year to land his signature next season we are cooking.
