After taking time out to contemplate his future, Siphiwe Tshabalala has signed a three-year contract extension with Kaizer Chiefs.
Chiefs’ football manager Bobby Motaung confirmed the news on the club’s official website.
“We are delighted that Tshabalala has renewed his contract after he was given time by the executive chairman (Kaizer Motaung) to ponder about his future,” Motaung said.
“He has always been loyal to the club and his experience will be important at this stage of the season.”
Last week Tshabalala asked for three days to consider his future, after English Championship side Crystal Palace revealed they would possibly offer him a contract in June.
Opinion was divided over whether Shabba should sign an extension at Chiefs or not, and how long he should sign for, considering how that would affect his chances of a move to Palace.
But with the English club holding out, Shabba has taken the plunge and signed on the dotted line.
The left-winger has scored 20 goals in 97 Premiers Soccer League appearances for Chiefs, and also boasts 62 caps for South Africa.
