As Goal previously reported, Amakhosi have been interested in the former Hellenic player since last month
Kaizer Chiefs are reportedly set to announce that the club has hired Gavin Hunt as the new head coach.
The experienced tactician has been a free agent following a seven-year spell with Bidvest Wits.
Wits sold their Premier Soccer League (PSL) status to National First Division (NFD) side Tshakhuma Tsha Madzivhandila, who decided not to retain Hunt’s services.

Hunt is said to have found a new home at Chiefs with the Soweto giants having fired German coach Ernst Middendorp last week.
Chiefs have also been interested in Algerian tactician Adel Amrouche as Goal previously reported.
The well-travelled coach is currently in charge of the Botswana national team and Amakhosi are said to have opted for Hunt as they look to end their trophy drought.
An accomplished coach with a proven track record, Hunt can be seen as the right man to deliver Chiefs’ first major trophy since 2015.
The 56-year-old is one of the most decorated coaches in the PSL having won four league titles and only Mamelodi Sundowns coach Pitso Mosimane has won more (five).
Hunt was the first coach to win three successive PSL titles when he guided SuperSport United to consecutive trophies between 2008 and 2010.
The Cape Town-born mentor also clinched the Nedbank Cup in his final season (2012/13) with SuperSport before moving to Wits.
Success followed Hunt to the Clever Boys as he led the team to its maiden PSL title in the 2016/17 campaign.
The retired defender also won the 2016 MTN8 and 2017 Telkom Knockout Cup with Wits.
Furthermore, Hunt won the Absa Cup (Nedbank Cup) with Chiefs’ Soweto rivals Moroka Swallows in 2004.
