Chippa United has expressed interest in signing Bidvest Wits player Daine Klate for the next season.

However, there has been no formal talks between the club and Klate.

Klate’s contract with Wits is coming to an end next month.

Although both parties have renewal options, 33-year-old Klate has made his intentions clear that he wants to return to Port Elizabeth.

Chippa’s Chief Operations Officer Lukhanyo Mzinzi says they made inquiries about the player last season since his contract was coming to an end.

Mzinzi says they have not yet met with Klate‘s representative.

“He is a lovely player; he is a professional. A brand one would like to associate with, but that will depend on the talks if those talks happen between the two parties.”
