The AmaKhosi football manager says it is now up to Stuart Baxter and his technical team to decide if Bukenya should sign
Kaizer Chiefs football manager Bobby Motaung has reiterated that the club will not be making any major signings during the current transfer window which closes later this week.
Motaung has renewed interest in Ugandan defender Ivan Bukenya, and he feels the centre-back position needs reinforcement after releasing Lincoln Zvasiya to Greece.
“We are interested in the player [Ivan Bukenya], but the technical team still needs to make the final call. We hope to make the decision in the next few days,” Motaung told the Chiefs website.

Despite sending Zvasiya out on loan to OFI Crete FC, AmaKhosi still have three Bafana central defenders in Morgan Gould, Tefu Mashamaite and Eric Mathoho.
However, Motaung and the rest of the technical team believe there is a need for another centre-back to provide enough competition.
“As we said in the past, we will be making additions in areas where we realise the need,” he added.

The 21-year-old Bukenya is currently plying his trade in Iraq with Ebril, and South Africa looks likely to be his next destination.
AmaKhosi have been inactive in the market, and although the club fans are crying for attack-minded players to be bought, it looks like Musona will be the only addition at least until the transfer window re-opens in January.
