Kaizer Chiefs have confirmed the presence of Sao Tome player, Jardel Nazare, in their camp as they look to bolster their ranks. Amakhosi are still barred from signing players as per the ruling by FIFA but they are now preparing to bring in new faces.

Coach Gavin Hunt is already planning for life beyond this season and having a player such as Nazare means they will go all-out in the transfer market.

Nazare is a 26-year-old left-sided versatile player who can play in defence or midfield and was part of the Sao Tome squad that competed in the same group as Bafana Bafana in qualifying for next year’s Africa Cup of Nations.

He was born in Portugal, Lisbon and is in possession of Portuguese citizenship, where he spent much of his career, and can definitely help Chiefs.

Nazaree was most recently on the books of a Georgian side Saburtalo, who he left in December 2020.

Despite sharing an update on their social media account on the player’s availability at their training base, Amakhosi have not confirmed whether they will be offering Nazare a contract or not.

In other news, Briefly News reported that Chiefs are reportedly looking to bring coach Stuart Baxter back to replace Gavin Hunt.

The Amakhosi hierarchy is weighing their options and the English manager might be back at Naturena.

According to iDiskiTimes, the former Bidvest Wits coach could part ways with the Soweto giants at the end of the current season.

Although they have reached the quarter-finals of the CAF Champions League for the first time in history, their run on the domestic front has not been convincing.

Chiefs have been blowing hot and cold in the DStv Premiership and consistency has been their major downfall under the former SuperSport United boss.

Chiefs are languishing at the bottom, number 10, of the table just five points off the relegation battle and are under pressure to secure their top eight spot.
