Kaizer Chiefs, Orlando Pirates and Mamelodi Sundowns are said to be interested in signing Free State Stars winger Sinethemba Jantjie.

Jantjie, who joined Stars from Mbombela United at the beginning of the season, has been in fine form for Ea Lla Koto since making his debut against SuperSport United in February.

“Chiefs, Pirates and Sundowns are interested in Jantjie. They have enquired about his availability, but as you know, he signed with Stars only at the beginning of the season, so he still has another two years left in his contract. So, if these teams are serious about signing then they have to buy him out of his contract,” a source close to Jantjie told Phakaaathi.

Meanwhile, as reported by Phakaaathi earlier, Rooi Mahamutsa and Nhlakanipho Ntuli are among the players who are facing uncertain futures at Stars.

The former Orlando Pirates duo signed short-term contracts with Ea Lla Koto during the January transfer period, but the club is yet to indicate whether or not it is going to keep them.

Other players who are likely to be released by Stars at the end of the season are Lindokuhle Nkambule, Thamsanqa Teyise, Davies Nkausu, Thabang Matuka and Nyiko Tshabangu.
