Cape Town - Stuart Baxter admits he is aware of the reported interest in his services from Raja Casablanca, but insists his focus has been solely on Kaizer Chiefs' campaign.

The tactician's current deal at Naturena is set to expire this year, leading to claims he could depart the newly-crowned Premiership champions at the end of the season.

Baxter and Chiefs squared off against Raja earlier this year in the CAF Champions League, where the Glamour Boys slumped to a 3-0 aggregate defeat in the first round, although the coach is still seemingly wanted by the Moroccan club.

However, Baxter gave no clue as to his plans beyond this season, saying only: "Someone made the [Raja Casablanca] interest known, but since then I have dedicated my time to winning the League with Kaizer Chiefs.

"That's being honest. Sometimes as a coach there is no honesty, you have to keep some things in the dark. But this is the truth."
