"Kaizer Chiefs can confirm the loan move of Kabelo Mahlasela to Polokwane City."

"Kaizer Chiefs and City agreed that the midfielder will join Rise & Shine on a loan deal, from January 2020 until June 2020."

"The attacking midfielder joined Kaizer Chiefs from Bloemfontein Celtic in the January transfer window in 2018 during the 2017/18 season," a club statement read.

Mahlasela has struggled with injuries during his spell with the Naturena-based side.

"He did not manage to play in the 2017/18 season after picking up an injury shortly after joining Chiefs."

"He made his Chiefs debut in a league game against Bidvest Wits on the 7th August 2018, during Chiefs’ second league game of the 2018/19 season."

"He played in a total of 17 games in all competitions for Amakhosi," another statement read.

Chiefs football manager Bobby Motaung lauded the former Orlando Pirates academy player.

“Kabelo remains a talented player and we wish him all of the best with City for the next five months,” Motaung said.

Polokwane are currently a point above the relegation zone and they will be hoping that Mahlasela helps them retain their status in the top-flight league.
