Amakhosi recently ran the rule over the 29-year-old, who has returned home while the Chiefs coach Stuart Baxter and the club's board make a decision on the forward's future at Naturena.

Any potential deal is only expected to last until the end of the current season, although there could also be an option to renew, should both parties be happy with the setup.

Chiefs spokesperson Vina Maphosa is quoted as saying by KickOff: "There haven't been any new developments on the matter. That is, it remains that the club is still assessing the possibilities."

Seemingly the biggest stumbling block in the proposed deal is the forward's need for a work permit, which usually proves a lengthy process and could see Keene miss the majority of Chiefs' season run in.
