A source told Soccer Laduma that Chiefs are keen on Mosele, while Pirates could offer the 24-year-old a new contract.

The source said:

“It seems they’ve [Chiefs] heard that his contract at Pirates is ending at the end of the season. They want to take advantage of that. But at the same time, Pirates have offered to renew his contract, so it’s going to be a tricky situation. It will also depend on what Chiefs will offer him and for how long against what Pirates are tabling. But I can tell you Chiefs are interested in Goodman.”

It has not been a good season for Kaizer Chiefs as they face a season without silverware, which has drawn criticism from Bafana legend Lucas Radebe.
