Kaizer Chiefs keeper Brilliant Khuzwayo may have priced himself out of Cape Town City move

Khuzwayo's future is hanging in the balance with the Citizens likely to withdraw their interest following the player's 'unrealistic demands'

Kaizer Chiefs goalkeeper Brilliant Khuzwayo may have well priced himself out of a possible move to Cape Town City, who feel the numbers he's asking for are unaffordable. 

The Citizens were hoping to sign the Umlazi-born shot-stopper before the current transfer window slams shut early next month, or even better, sign him on a pre-contract for the 2018/19 PSL season.

According to City boss John Comitis, Khuzwayo's camp, led by Tim Sukazi, has already made demands that are unrealistic in the early stages of the negotiations.  

"Yes, we want to sign Khuzwayo and we’ve already engaged his agent, but his demands are unrealistic," Comitis told Independent Media.

"The numbers they are asking for are unaffordable," Comitis explained.

The 27-year-old, who is in the final six months of his contract with Amakhosi, told his current employers to guarantee him some game time before he can sign a new deal. 

At this stage, it looks like Khuzwayo will be stuck at Naturena for the remainder of the season, and chances are that he could be frozen out should he turn down the club's offer.
