Goal can exclusively reveal that Kaizer Chiefs are working hard to have Camaldine Abraw back for the second half of the season. 

Media reports surfaced last week that Amakhosi were planning to release the Togolese striker in an effort to free up their foreign space.

However, a source within the club has revealed that the medical team has been mandated to get Abraw fit again as soon as possible.

Abraw had a surgery at the start of the campaign, and he was only expected to return to action in March this year. 

"Abraw recovered sooner than everyoene expected, and for this reason the medical team believes he can be ready before March," the source told Goal

"Their mandate is to get him ready as soon as possible. He's improving everyday and could soon return to action. If he recovers, he will surely be registered. So, there is no truth that he might be offloaded," the source continued.

"Komphela still believes in the player, and he wants to have him back soon. This is why he is in Potchefstroom with the team, and he has been working very hard knowing that the club still needs him," concluded the source.

The lanky striker featured 28 times in all competitions for the Glamour Boys last season and found the back of the net on six separate occasions.
