Kaizer Chiefs are yet to decide on Keagan Dolly's future at the club, as his current contract is set to end next month.

The South African midfielder struggled with injury for most part of the 2023-24 season as the Glamour Boys recorded their worst-ever campaign in Premier Soccer League's history.

The former Bafana Bafana star played eight games in all competitions for Kaizer Chiefs, registering just one assist.

Due to his constant injuries, Amakhosi are not sure about renewing Dolly's contract as two PSL rivals are monitoring the situation and waiting for the club's decision, according to a report by the South African.

AmaZulu FC and Cape Town City are both interested in signing the Amakhosi star on a free transfer in the summer.

The only issue both PSL clubs would have in Dolly's deal is meeting up with the 31-year-old's wages.

The Kaizer Chiefs midfielder is one of the highest-paid footballers in Africa, with a yearly take home of R17.4 million, which would be a huge concern for both Amakhosi and his admirers.

If he decides to stay at the Naturena, his wages will have to be reduced.

The former Montpellier star could suffer the same fate as Zimbabwean international Khama Billiat at Kaizer Chiefs.

The club is likely to offer him a much lower salary as his camp continues to wait on the Glamour Boys.

Cavin Johnson stresses Chiefs' transfer policy

Sports Brief also reported on Cavin Johnson's insistence that Kaizer Chiefs did not need transfers in the January window.

Amakhosi brought in 10 new players in July last year, and the interim boss said that he had enough quality to work with.

Kaizer Chiefs resumed their season with a goalless draw against Royal AM, immediately prompting calls for a goal-scorer.
