Kaizer Chiefs to offer Keeper Daniel Akpeyi two-year contract extension

Kaizer Chiefs to offer Keeper Daniel Akpeyi two-year contract extension

Nigerian goalkeeper Daniel Akpeyi will be handed a two year contract extension at Kaizer Chiefs.

The Nigerian international has been with Amakhosi for a year now, and he’s currently the club’s No.1 keeper ahead of Itumeleng Khune.  

According to a source within the Chiefs camp, Akpeyi will be handed a two-year deal and there’s also a possibility of an option to renew for another year. 

Akpeyi’s current deal with the club is coming to an end in July, but he’s been told not to worry about his immediate future. 

The 33-year-old shot-stopper was brought in by Ernst Middendorp in January 2019 as Chiefs were struggling in the goalkeeping department without Khune. Article continues below

Akpeyi had a shaky start to his career at Naturena, and his first six months at the club were met with huge criticism as some fans wanted the club to release him. 

However, he proved his doubters wrong this term and helped Chiefs top the standings with his fantastic displays in between the sticks.   

The lanky shot-stopper has featured 18 times across all competitions for the Glamour Boys thus far, keeping eight clean sheets and conceding 15 goals in the process.
