Bafana Bafana and Amiens midfielder Bongani Zungu has dropped a hint that he could be heading to Premier Soccer League giants Kaizer Chiefs.

The 29-year-old player, whose contract with French Ligue 2 outfit Amiens will expire at the end of this season, revealed the Chiefs link in his official Instagram page by posting a photo with a love and peace sign which is associated with the Soweto-giants.

Chiefs' current head coach Stuart Baxter is also in the photo which was placed on Zungu's Instagram story and this has fueled further speculations that he could be heading to the PSL giants with the experienced player free to sign a pre-contract with a club of his choice.

Zungu was one of Bafana's key players during Baxter's second era as South Africa head coach. The British tactician guided Bafana to the 2019 Africa Cup of Nations quarter-finals in Egypt with Zungu being South Africa's standout performer in the tournament.

The lanky midfield maestro has constantly been linked with Chiefs for the last two transfer windows, with reports suggesting that the Soweto-giants are also interested in his services.

On January 2, Zungu started and played for the entire 90 minutes for Amiens as they emerged 4-3 winners against ESA Linas-Montlheryin the French Cup fixture at Stade d'Honneur Paul Desgouillons.

The Duduza-born player is one of South African's top central midfielders having played for Dynamos, University of Pretoria and Mamelodi Sundowns in South Africa, before moving to Europe where he has turned out for the Portuguese side Vitoria Guimaraes, Scottish giants Rangers and Amiens.

On the international scene, Zungu made his debut for South Africa in a 2-0 win against Burkina Faso on 17 August 2013. He scored his first international goal against Swaziland on November 15, 2013, with South Africa winning 3-0.

He has so far managed 30 appearances for Bafana and scored five goals to his credit.
