Njabulo Ngcobo's post-Kaizer Chiefs future being finalised

Kaizer Chiefs defender Njabulo Ngcobo is close to finalising his next move following a very challenging spell in Naturena.

The AmaZulu development graduate joined Amakhosi in 2021, following a successful campaign with Moroka Swallows, where he won the PSL Defender of the Season accolade and was becoming a regular in the Bafana Bafana setup.

In his first season with Chiefs, Ngcobo had some challenges which saw him losing his spot in the team, which already led to talks of him being sent out on loan in his second year, with AmaZulu and Richards Bay understood to have been interested.

It has now emerged that Sekhukhune United have overtaken the KwaZulu-Natal clubs in their pursuit of the 29-year-old, with everything believed to have been agreed upon for Ngcobo to join them on a free transfer in July.

When SABC Sport contacted his manager Sboniso Ngubane on Sunday, he did confirm talks with Sekhukhune United, but refused to give away much regarding the player's next move.

"We are still negotiating with them," Ngubane told the public broadcaster's sports desk.

The final decision is expected to be announced before the end of June, with Chiefs also set to make pronouncements regarding changes to their squad, including a new coach.
