The duo, who were promoted to the senior side of the Chiefs in the 2020/21 season, spent last season on loan with Motsepe Foundation Championship Uthongathi.

They returned to the Chiefs during the current pre-season, but now Amahoshi has announced that they will play next season with the Birds.

Over the past couple of seasons, the Chiefs and Swallows have developed a working relationship of sorts.

The relationship began during the Birds’ tenure in the first division, when the Chiefs loaned them players such as Given Tibedi and Itumeleng Shopane, who helped the Birds advance to the elite league in 2020. Tibedi eventually moved to Swallows full-time.

The Chiefs recently signed Swallows’ Dillan Solomons, George Matlow and Kamohelo Mahlatsi.
