Kaizer Chiefs have confirmed that striker Yusuf Bunting will spend a season on loan with PSL outfit Highlands Park in a bid to secure some much needed game time.
The 22-year-old was promoted from Chiefs’ development team last season following a number of standout performances in the Multichoice Diski Challenge.

Bunting’s stock rose after getting the Best Player and Top Goalscorer at the SAB Under-21 National Championship.
Despite getting onto the scoresheet during a pre-season clash against ABC Motsepe outfit Buya Msuthu, the striker will spend a few months with Owen Da Gama’s side in order to acclimatise to the conditions of the PSL.
