Kaizer Chiefs note the reports that are making rounds relating to the transfer of Teenage Hadebe.

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.


In 2020, Chiefs were banned by FIFA following the illegal signing of Andriamirado ‘Dax’ Andrianarimanana.

This is after Chiefs failed to pay Dax’s former club Fosa Juniors an amount owed due to the breaching of his contract when he joined the Soweto giants. The club appealed the decision but lost in the process.

“Chiefs shall be banned from registering players, either nationally or internationally, for the next two entire and consecutive registration periods,” FIFA said at the time.
