Kaizer Chiefs assess Scottish defender Webster

Chiefs coach Stuart Baxter will have to decide on the Scottish international centre-back Andy Webster

Kaizer Chiefs will have a closer look at the former Hearts of Midlothian player Andy Webster, as they continue their search for an experienced centre-back.

Webster has reportedly joined the rest of the AmaKhosi players for their pre-season training, but only Stuart Baxter would decide whether or not to sign the defender.

The 31-year-old Scottish defender was believed to be on his way to Ajax Cape Town, but it has emerged that the move fell through.

However, Webster could soon be donning the black and gold colours, should he impress Baxter during his stay at Naturena.

Hearts of Midlothian were more than willing to extend Webster’s contract before it expired at the end of May, but the Dundee-born defender turned the offer down.

Webster spent some time in the English Premier League with Wigan Athletic between 2006 and 2008, but he was later loaned out to Rangers where he only made one appearance.

Webster returned to his home town in 2009, where he scored four goals in 31 appearances for Dundee United, before signing for Hearts of Midlothian in 2011.
