Daniel Akpeyi set to become a South African citizen

Super Eagles goalkeeper, Daniel Akpeyi, will become a South African citizen this year following his five-year stay in the country.

Akpeyi is going to be issued a South African passport by the country’s government after spending the last five years playing for two clubs in the South African ABSA Premiership.

The 33-year-old moved to Chippa United from Warri Wolves in 2015 after impressing in a friendly encounter between Nigeria and South Africa.

The Nigerian goalie later moved to Kaizer Chiefs in 2018 following an injury to Itumeleng Khune and is now the Amakhosi’s first-choice goalkeeper.

Daniel Akpeyi, who recently signed a new two-year deal with the club, will now be registered as a South African in the PSL which will now give Kaizer Chiefs the opportunity to sign another foreign player.
