The former Bakgaga goalkeeper has reportedly been spotted at Amakhosi's training ground

According to reports former Baroka FC goalkeeper Oscarine Masuluke is currently being assessed by the Kaizer Chiefs technical team.

The Limpopo-born shot-stopper who recently parted ways with Bakgaga, has been on the lookout for a new club since February, and it is believed that he could be brought in at Amakhosi with Itumeleng Khune’s deputy Brilliant Khuzwayo likely to leave at the end of the season.

Nonetheless, Masuluke who garnered global attention after scoring a stoppage time bicycle kick against Orlando Pirates in 2016 and was subsequently nominated for the Fifa Puskas Award where he was eventually beaten by former Arsenal and now Chelsea forward Olivier Giroud, has experienced a rather difficult time of late.

Prior to his untimely departure, the lanky 24-year-old saw his game time limited due to the stern competition at the club. This tough is not likely to change if he does indeed impress at Naturena, as Khuzwayo will bear witness to.

Khune is arguably the league’s best keeper as he has kept 14 clean sheets and has only missed two league encounters.

Nevertheless, after being spotted at Chiefs’ training base on Thursday morning, reports have evidently confirmed that he will be assessed by the club.

“He’s there for an assessment and it’s up to him to impress the club,” A FARPost source revealed.

However, despite being a free agent, if Masuluke does impress the technical team which includes new goalkeeper coach Lee Baxter, the son of the current Bafana Bafana mentor, he will only be allowed to pen a new deal during the next transfer window.

Fifa rules dictate that due to the fact that he was released after the 2018 January transfer window, he cannot sign for another club for the remainder of the season. But with only a handful of games left in the current campaign, Masuluke will not be too fazed.
