Johannesburg - Kaizer Chiefs coach Vladimir Vermezovic has reiterated his desire to retain the services of club captain Itumeleng Khune and star winger Siphiwe Tshabalala.

The Bafana Bafana pair are contracted until June 30, 2012, with Vermezovic eager to extend their stays amid rumoured interest from Mamelodi Sundowns.

"It is important that we try and keep players, and we want to keep the likes of Shabba and Khune," he told Chiefs' official magazine.

"These are players, they play for Bafana Bafana and it is important that we re-sign them."

The Serbian is likewise hopeful Abia Nale pens fresh terms with Amakhosi, insisting he values the 25-year-old despite his reluctance to start the ex-Golden Arrows attacker.

Vermezovic said: "I also want to make sure a guy like Abia Nale re-signs. He is a player we want to keep. He may not play all the time but he is good coming off the bench.

"He is like 'Baby Faced Assassin', Ole Gunnar Solskjaer who used to play for Manchester United. He would come off the bench and score goals, make an impact and that is what I expect from Abia."
