Baxter has confirmed to Goal that AmaKhosi have started monitoring the market in case they fail to keep Knowledge Musona for at least another season

Kaizer Chiefs have already started preparing for life without striker Knowledge Musona, according to the club head coach Stuart Baxter.
Musona is heavily linked with a move back to German outfit TSG Hoffenheim, and Baxter told Goal that he has earmarked three players that could possibly fill the void.
"We've got two or three names in the event of Knowledge not ending up to remain with us," Baxter told Goal. "But we are hopeful that we can find a solution on that. I've got one foreign name and I've got a couple of African names," he said.
Pushed to reveal his targets, Baxter could only confirm that there's at least one local player that they are looking to sign, but he wasn't ready to mention any names.
"Well, there's at least one local name. So, we have got one in each category, but we just have to wait and see. Knowledge is our preference because we know him and he knows us, but you know the world is not always perfect."
The 23-year-old Zimbabwean forward has netted 11 goals in all competitions so far this term since his loan move back to AmaKhosi before the start of the season.
