Johannesburg - Kaizer Chiefs have confirmed Santos have offered the services of veteran player Erwin Isaacs ahead of the new season.
The 25-year-old midfielder-cum-striker has told the People's Team
he is unwilling to go down with the team to the National First
Division, which has resulted in the Cape Town outfit taking the decision
to put the player up for transfer
Amakhosi football manager Bobby Motaung told Football411
the Soweto club will make a decision on whether to take on the player
sometime next week after first consulting with Chiefs chairman Kaizer
Motaung and head coach Stuart Baxter.
"We haven't had a discussion about Erwin Isaacs, but we will meet
the chairperson Kaizer Motaung and the coach (on Friday)," he said.
"If the coach wants him, then we will look into it but at the
moment what has happened is that Santos have spoken to me about the
player and the only thing remaining is to consult with the coach.
"They were in camp and only arrived back on Wednesday so we had
to give the coach some time to work with the current team and he will
tell us if he needs to reinforce," Motaung stated.
However, 'Bobsteak' added that Santos' approach does not mean Chiefs will definitely buy the player.
"Like I said, we have to speak to the coach and find out if he is
keen on further reinforcements of the team. Santos offered me the
player, but it all depends on whether Stuart will be interested in the
player," he added.
Motaung confirmed the asking price for Isaacs is R3.5 million.
