As the January transfer window approaches, Njabulo Blom, a young player for Kaizer Chiefs, continues to be a hot topic.
Although there have been some apparent issues between the player’s representatives and the club management, which has led to talk that he could end up leaving Naturena, Chiefs coach Arthur Zwane recently suggested he hopes the midfielder will be able to secure a new contract extension.
According to the latest issue of Soccer Laduma, Blom has actually been offered to SuperSport United “in unofficial discussions… potentially as a free agent at the end of the season given that Amakhosi are unlikely to sell him”.
Of course, a lot can still change between now and January, with Zwane recently making his view on the matter quite clear.
“As a coach I will always want to see Njabulo [Blom] playing football and succeeding in playing football because he’s very talented,” Zwane said.
“Unfortunately, these things do happen with people who represent them so I will leave the club to deal with it. I’m not that much worried; obviously, we want to see him on the field. He’s got the qualities; we know Njabulo since he was 15 years old, actually 14 years old when he came to Kaizer Chiefs. He’s doing well. Obviously as much as we looking for perfection, there will always be mistakes, and we can work on those mistakes.”
