Cape Town - Roger de Sa said he would wait for Dominic Isaacs to return to training before making a call on whether to recruit a defender during the transfer window.

De Sa has achieved a considerable amount with a very young Ajax squad this season, while the 32-year-old Isaacs has been sidelined from football for a protracted period. Throughout the current campaign, De Sa has always maintained that he would not recruit players for the sake of it, adding that he would only do so if the situation absolutely demanded it.

At this juncture the jury is out on whether Isaacs will have the capacity to compete to the best of his ability during the second half of the Premiership campaign and that is something that De Sa hopes to be able to determine sooner, rather than later.

"Yeah, look we've got two options," De Sa told goal.com.

"It's either we go and get a defender or we wait for Dominic to start training with the team, which he will be when we return for pre-season, he will be fully fit in January and we will just have to wait (and see) how he is when he joins the squad first," added De Sa.

De Sa does concede that he has been keeping his eyes peeled for anybody who might be a suitable replacement for Isaacs when the season resumes this February.

"But we are looking. We are continuously looking for players. We are no different to anybody else," added De Sa, suggesting that this might not be the only area of his team which could require some bolstering in 2015.

"We always look at where we can strengthen our team and we also have eyes at what’s coming up in the junior ranks," said De Sa.

"But we are looking to see what we can do to improve our squad."

Ajax Cape Town are currently fifth in the Premiership standings, having accumulated 24 points this season. However, there is still the distinct possibility that the club’s circumstances will change, as Polokwane City, Chippa United and Mariztburg United, who are just below Ajax, still have an additional game in hand.
