Kaizer Chiefs football manager Bobby Motaung says the club is done signing players in the current PSL Transfer Window.

Amakhosi managed to snap up Kabelo Mahlasela, Siphelele Ntshangase, while Leonardo Castro was their marquee signing this month.

Colombian marksman Castro, who scored on debut last weekend,  joined Chiefs from Mamelodi Sundowns, while Mahlasela and Ntshangase were signed from Bloemfontein Celtic and Baroka FC respectively.

Speaking to Isolezwe, Motaung stated that Amakhosi are looking to work with what they have in the camp as they look to mount a serious challenge for this season's Premier Soccer League (PSL) title.

“We are done signing players, there are no other players that we wish to sign at the moment," Motaung said.

"We won’t add to the number of players we have signed right now,” the Amakhosi club official concluded.

The Naturena-based outfit has been linked with Free State Stars winger Sinethemba Jantjie  as they look to beef up their midfield.

However, Chiefs coach Steve Komphela has dismissed reports stating that the club is interested in signing the 28-year-old this month.

The four-time PSL champions have parted ways with Zimbabwe international Mitchelle Katsvairo, while promising defender Lorenzo Gordinho joined Celtic on a one-year loan deal.

Midfielders William Twala and Keagan Buchanan, who have both fallen out of favour at the Soweto giants, are most likely to leave Amakhosi before the current Transfer Window closes next week.

Both players have repeatedly been linked with Maritzburg United, but the club's chairman Farouk Kadodia has since stated that they are no longer keen to sign Buchanan.

Chiefs’ next assignment will be against league log leaders Mamelodi Sundowns in a titanic match which is scheduled to played at the FNB Stadium on Saturday night.

Third-placed Amakhosi will cut the Brazilians' lead to two points if they secure a victory in Nasrec.
