Sifiso Hlanti’s agent says that while the defender is training with Kaizer Chiefs there is no offer on the table as the club awaits an appeal decision on their transfer ban.
It was confirmed earlier this week that the Bafana Bafana left back is training with his former coach from Bidvest Wits, Gavin Hunt, at Naturena ahead of the new season.
Hlanti is currently a free agent following the sale of Bidvest Wits’ status to Limpopo outfit Tshakhuma Tsha Madzivhandila, and his subsequent release after TTM decided not to keep him on.

According to his agent, Sizwe Ntshangase, Chiefs were the only team that asked him to training.
‘They asked him to come and train with them, and we also thought it was better for him to go to gym than to stay without a club, you see,’ Ntshangase told KickOff.com.
‘In short, he is still training with Kaizer Chiefs, nothing else, there’s no contract, there’s no offer. The only agreement in place is for him to train. Going forward we will see what happens. Anything can still happen.’
If Chiefs have their transfer ban overturned by the CAS, Hlanti could very well become their first signing, but if the ban is upheld he will have to search for another club.
