OFFICIAL: MALULEKA PENS NEW KAIZER CHIEFS DEAL
The 28-year-old has put pen to paper on a new three-year deal after weeks of speculation over his future
Kaizer Chiefs midfielder George Maluleka has officially signed a new three-year deal, the Soweto giants confirmed on Thursday.
Maluleka’s previous deal was set to expire at the end of the current season, but after weeks of negotiations with the club, he has decided to commit his future to Amakhosi.
The former SuperSport United star told Goal in February that he wasn’t concerned about his future at the club .
Chiefs took to social media to announce Maluleka’s deal.
Contract Updates: George Maluleka has signed a 3 year contract extension with the Club
The 28-year-old had a slow start to his Amakhosi career three years ago, but he has since become an integral part of the club’s midfield alongside Willard Katsande.
He helped Amakhosi win the 2014/15 league title as well as the MTN8 trophy under Stuart Baxter.
Maluleka’s deal would excite Amakhosi fans more, especially as there were reports that he could return to Tshwane to link up with Baxter.
He follows in the footsteps of Katsande, Erick Mathoho, Lorenzo Gordinho, Tsepo Masilela and Kgotso Moleko, who all recently extended their contracts with the Glamour Boys.
