Ngcongca is a free agent after terminating his contract with Belgian club Racing Genk.
He had two years left on his contract with Genk.
Chiefs and Sundowns are said to be competing for his signature, but Phakaaathi has been made to believe that the Brazilians are favourites to land the 28-year-old defender’s signature.
Ngcongca, who spent last season on loan at French Ligue 1 outfit Troyes, returned to Genk for preseason, but was reportedly told he was not in manager Peter Maes’ plans for this season.
He then asked to be released from his contract, and his wish was granted by the club.
The news about Ngcongca’s release from Genk were confirmed by his ProSport International agent, Paschalis Tountouris, on Tuesday.
