Kaizer Chiefs look unlikely to recruit a few more players during this transfer window, that's according to the club's football manager Bobby Motaung.

Chiefs previously promised to sign two more 'big name' players, but Motaung has now told Goal that the club doesn't want to have a group superstars, because they cannot all play at the same.

"We have added two players, but remember we had already signed Ivan Bukenya from Uganda," Motaung told Goal.

"We are a work in progress. We don't want to have a squad of 40 players where only 30 or 25 of them are playing," he said.

Motaung added that they will also continue to monitor the progress of their youth ranks having promoted Philani Cele to the first team late last year.

"We also have our youth. We have players that got promoted to the first team," he added.

However, Motaung confirmed that they haven't heard anything from Sundowns regarding their bid for Edward Manqele. Chiefs are still keen on Manqele.
