Cape Town - Kaizer Chiefs striker Bernard Parker would welcome the return of former teammates Itumeleng Khune, Tefu Mashamaite and Mandla Masango back to Naturena.
The trio that infamously walked out on Amakhosi remain without a club after failing to agree contract terms.
However, the 29-year-old remains hopeful the club and the free agents can come to an amicable resolution.
"Itu is just on another level and is far, far ahead of any South African keeper and even on the continent. Mandla as well having proven his quality last season it will definitely be a plus if he were to come back," Parker told KickOff.
"I am not sure about Masha - if they were to come back it would mean more muscle in the team."
Parker is pleased with the progress that has been made under the tutelage of new coach Steve Komphela, who took up the reins following the departure of Stuart Baxter.
"We remain driven to excel again this season. Change is pain but change can be good and go the other way," Parker added.
