French newspaper L’Equipe reported on Monday that Amiens were looking to add Castro to their striking department.
Very interesting (or disturbing depending who you are) news for #absaprem transfer window : what's happening between #kaizerchiefs and Leo Castro's signature? French newspaper @lequipe announces that Amiens in Ligue 1 is likely to sign him in today's edition! @robertmarawa pic.twitter.com/hTbCrkRKFa

This led to frantic speculation on social media that Castro could indeed be about to snub Amakhosi and make a move instead to France, giving Chiefs an unwanted surprise at the start of 2018.
Dear @KaizerChiefs, do hope Leo Castro actually signed a contract with you, and you have more than a verbal agreement in place. Otherwise the reports linking him with a move to Amiens in France could mean your search for a striker continues. Best regards, Dave
