Super Eagles goalkeeper Daniel Akpeyi is eligible to apply for South African citizenship next season.
The goalie arrived in the country in 2015, meaning he will complete their five-year stay in South Africa at the of the current campaign.
Akpeyi signed for Chippa United from Warri Rovers before joining Amakhosi in January 2018 following an injury to Itumeleng Khune.
He has managed to keep the No.1 shirt at the club, relegating Khune to the bench, especially this term.
Akpeyi has also signed new two-year deal with Amakhosi and have, therefore, freed up foreign spot.
However, for the Soweto giants to use the space left in their foreign quota, they will have to win their appeal against the two-window transfer ban imposed by Fifa in February this year.
With Akpeyi set to be registered as a local player, Chiefs will then have a foreign international registered.
