Keagan Dolly approached by PSL side after Kaizer Chiefs exit

The attacker looks to have found a new home just days after leaving Naturena

SuperSport United have made an approach to Keagan Dolly following his departure from Kaizer Chiefs.

Dolly was among four players released by Chiefs this week following the end of their contracts and it seems he will not wait for long before finding a new home.

The attacker has been on the radar of SuperSport United, AmaZulu as well as Cape Town City and it seems Matsatsantsa have won the race for his signature.

As per iDiski Times, the 31-year-old is close to finalising a deal with SuperSport in time to join the club’s pre-season training next week with coach Gavin Hunt keen to add some experience to his squad as they push to finish higher up the table next season following their seventh place in 2024-25.

The 31-year-old did not cover himself in glory at Naturena

Former Mamelodi Sundowns and Montpellier attacker Dolly spent three years at Chiefs but his last two seasons did not yield much.

He managed 14 goals and 11 assists in 67 games during his spell at Naturena but could only play eight matches across all competitions last season when injuries hampered him.

Dolly joined Siyethemba Sithembe, S'fiso Hlanti and Njabulo Ngcobo in leaving Chiefs as the Glamour Boys create room for new additions under incoming Tunisian coach Nasreddine Nabi.

Dolly will earn less than the R1.5 million he was own at Chiefs

His poor return at the club made it easy for Amakhosi to offload him at the end of his contract on June 30 with the club set to save a substantial sum after getting him off the wage bill, having been the club’s best paid player.

Details of Dolly’s deal at SuperSport are still not known but it is believed he will earn less than the R1.5 million per month he was own at Chiefs.

Hunt complained of lack of experience as his side struggled with consistency last season and he seems to have settled on Dolly to add the much-needed knowhow.
