Cape Town City boss John Comitis: Brilliant Khuzwayo's a great keeper

Posted: 8 December 2017 Time: 14:00

Cape Town City boss John Comitis has indicated he will sound out the availability of Kaizer Chiefs goalkeeper Brilliant Khuzwayo in the January transfer window.

Khuzwayo is contracted to Chiefs until June, meaning he can sign a pre-contract with another team in the new year should he wish to move on.

The highly-rated shot-stopper, who earlier in the season hinted on social media that he wants regular game-time, has played second fiddle to Bafana Bafana number one Itumeleng Khune since his arrival at Naturena in 2012.

Comitis says he has not spoken with Khuzwayo's agent Tim Sukazi but admits the need to bolster the Citizens' goalkeeping department, which includes veteran Shu-Aib Walters and Sage Stephens.

"My recruitment agent who does my recruitment has spoken to Tim Sukazi... I have not spoken to Tim, but we realise that Khuzwayo's still contracted to Chiefs so we can't talk to him until January," Comitis says.

"If in January he [Khuzwayo] is willing to talk to us I'll meet... he's a great goalkeeper. I think we can look in that direction because our goalkeeper now Walters is 35 and turning 36.

"He has been a great servant to the club but we got to be realistic and at this stage we need to look to see if we can beef up that department."

The 27-year-old Khuzwayo has played two league matches this campaign.
