Chiefs deny looming transfer ban

Soweto giant Kaizer Chiefs have denied reports that they are facing yet another transfer ban following the signing of Teenage Hadebe.

The Amakhosi denied reports from Zimbabwe that the club would face a transfer ban for selling Hadebe to Yeni Malatyaspor in Turkey.

Chiefs signed the Zimbabwean back in 2017, where he only lasted two years before moving to Europe.

The 27-year-old has since moved on to Houston Dynamo in the United States, however, despite leaving Chiefs nearly three years ago, Hadebe’s move could spell trouble.

Hadebe’s club in Zimbabwe Chicken Inn claim they had a clause in the contract that indicated they were due to financially benefit from any sale away from Chiefs.

Fifa are said to have ordered Chiefs to pay Chicken Inn over R350,000, Zimbabwean publication Sunday World reported.

Following the report, Chiefs took to their Twitter page to deny the claims pinned against them.

“Some news reports say: ‘Initially, indications are that Hadebe joined the Turkey club as a free agent. However, it was unearthed that the Arthur Zwane-coached side indeed sold him, albeit for an undisclosed fee.’

“The club would like to categorically dismiss the reports as flawed and misleading. Kaizer Chiefs have fulfilled all the obligations in the transfer of Hadebe,” the club said in a statement.

Chiefs have however found themselves involved in a transfer saga before. In December 2018 the club were found guilty of transfer wrongdoing in regard to the transfer of Andriamirado “Dax” Andrianarimanana.

Fifa punished Chiefs by handing the club a two-year transfer ban.
