Kaizer Chiefs made headlines for releasing some of their DStv Diski Challenge players earlier this season. 

These were not just any youth players, but some prominent Chiefs players including DDC captain Omega Mdaka

Mdaka, who is a left-back, was joined on the Chiefs exit list by right-back Puso Dithejane. Chiefs released both the former skipper and the Bafana Bafana international for ill discipline. This stemming from the duo being part of the DDC contingent that refused to do ball boy duties for the first team.

While Mdaka is yet to find a new club since leaving Chiefs, Dithejane, was never going to struggle. He swiftly found a new home in TS Galaxy. It seemed as if Mdaka would also not have to wait long for a new home, being invited by AmaZulu. According to reports, he was offered another reserve team contract at Usuthu, but opted against signing it.

That story, however, seems to be debunked by AmaZulu head coach Pablo Martin. The Spanish tactician is under the impression that both Mdaka and the club wanted the deal to go through, it was, however, a failure on the parts of Usuthu and Chiefs to agree on a transfer fee that halted things. 

CHIEFS AND AMAZULU FAIL TO AGREE ON MDAKA TRANSFER FEE

“This is normal, he was training with us for a week, I think he was a good player and very interesting for the club. ’m not going to say [he was good] for the first team but for the future of the club, sure 100%. But from there, what I heard is that they were some problems in the negotiations between the clubs. There was like a release clause from Chiefs, it was impossible to finalise the deal. This is the only thing I heard of but that was long time ago.” Said Martin according to FARPost.

In a recent report, it was believed that Mdaka is currently at home low in spirits after his Chiefs exit. He is also thought to be affected by the failed move to AmaZulu.
