Transfer-listed Kaizer Chiefs forward Lazarous Kambole is bargaining on sneaking his way back into contention based on the order of events at the club.
Kambole has already attracted interest from Tanzania and Sudan but has chosen to hold on at Chiefs where he is hoping to ultimately find his way back on the field again considering the situation of fellow strikers at the club.
Colombian striker Leonardo Castro will only be back in action towards the end of the year while the transfer speculation on the head of Samir Nurkovic remains alive with interest from Egyptian club Pyramid still flashing.
This means Chiefs run the risk of being thinner than they anticipated in attack with rumours suggesting that they are weighing up the option of signing another attacker.
With Kambole still under contracted and registered he sat on the bench last night against TS Galaxy.
He was also an unused substitute against Orlando Pirates in the Carling Black Label Cup but wasn’t in the squad for the MTN8 defeat against Mamelodi Sundowns.
"I prefer to talk about the players that were on the field. You know the situation with our transfer-listed players. That doesn’t change overnight. The transfer window is going to come and go and we can get an offer for players that are not on the transfer list. So, the transfer window will come and go and we will see after that if we have lost anything or if we need anything. I would rather speak about the players that actually played," responded Stuart Baxter when asked about Kambole.
In the two years that he has spent at Chiefs, Kambole has scored once in 40 appearances but still has a year remaining on his contract which is why the club has placed him on the transfer-list.
