Kaizer Chiefs make key decisions on trio’s futures

Kaizer Chiefs have made key decisions for three senior team players, ending speculation on their future. 

The club confirmed on Thursday that Nkosingiphile Ngcobo, Bruce Bvuma, and Brandon Petersen have all signed new deals.  

His journey from the academy began in 2014 and has been meteoric. Bvuma’s unwavering determination has been evident in every match, propelling him swiftly to the senior ranks.

His new deal keeps him at Naturena until June 2026, with an option to extend for a year. Petersen, who arrived at Amakhosi in 2020 from Bidvest Wits, also penned a deal until June 2026. There is also an option to add another year. In his third year at the club, the 29-year-old has represented the club in 43 official matches. 

 “The third contract signing is for Nkosigiphile Ngcobo. Just like Bvuma, Ngcobo started playing in the team’s development structures. He was promoted in 2017 at 17. He has played in various competitions, including the CAF Champions League. Amakhosi reached the final in 2021,” read the club’s statement.

‘Mshini’, held in high regard by interim coach Cavin Johnson, has been handed a two-year contract. There is a further one-year option.

The club’s Sporting Director, Kaizer Motaung Jr., said the trio had displayed outstanding dedication to the club.

“Bruce, Mshini and Brandon have shown immense potential as Chiefs players and have displayed great dedication to the Club. We believe in their abilities and are confident they will continue to be an integral part of our team’s success in the coming years. We are excited to see them reach new heights,” he said.

Bvuma has featured four times for Amakhosi this season, keeping three clean sheets. He said he was highly motivated to work harder in the coming seasons.

“I’m extremely humbled and grateful for the opportunity to continue representing Kaizer Chiefs. This Club has been my home for years. I’m highly motivated to work even harder for our fans and bring more success to the Gold and Black jersey.”

Ngcobo also expressed his desire to “contribute as much as I can as the team works on securing a trophy.”
