Cape Town - Kaizer
Chiefs have confirmed they are still considering whether to hand England-born
striker James Keene a deal following trials in Soweto this month.

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.
