Legendary Mzansi goalkeeper Itumeleng Khune could be heading to a new club after Cape Town City chairman John Comitis showed his admiration for the shot-stopper.

The 36-year-old goalkeeper, who was honoured by Kaizer Chiefs after his last home game, is looking for a new club, but Comitis said a City move is unlikely.

John Comitis is happy with Darren Keet

City could sign Khune, according to the tweet below:

Speaking to Soccer Laduma, Comitis said the club is likely to stick with current custodian Darren Keet, but he praised Khune, who SuperSport United previously rejected.

Comitis said:

"We still have Darren Keet. We will persevere with Keet at the moment; we don't need Khune right now. [Khune] is a good goalkeeper, but for now, we are good with what we have, and that's Darren Keet for us."

Fans want Khune to retire

Local football fans took to social media to say Khune should instead consider retirement, while some think a move to Cape Town would be a good move.

"They can pay him R400k like they did with Teko Modise."

Leon Sive Zenzisi says Itu should stay at Chiefs:

"Itu must accept anything that Chiefs is offering him."
