Daniel Akpeyi joins Kaizer Chiefs

Kaizer Chiefs are understood to have completed a deadline day signing of Nigerian international goalkeeper Daniel Akpeyi.

South Africa’s KickOff.com confirmed that Chiefs were set to unveil their new shot-stopper at a press conference set for 13h30 on Thursday.

Chiefs coach Ernst Middendorp grew increasingly frustrated with reserve goalkeeper Virgil Vries following yet another blunder by the Namibian international against Cape Town City on Wednesday evening.

The club then turned to the 32-year-old Super Eagles goalie from Chippa United, with the transfer window set to close at midnight.

The Glamour Boys were earlier linked to Mamelodi Sundowns goalkeeper Thela Ngobeni, but it would seem the club have failed in their pursuit of the former Free State Stars man.
