Cape Town - Following their unsettled striker Lehlohonolo Majoro's transfer saga, Kaizer Chiefs head coach Stuart Baxter has revealed that the 27-year-old target man is no longer part of his plans and will not feature for the Amakhosi for the remainder of the season.

Majoro made his intentions clear that he will not extend his stay at Naturena when his current contract expires at the end of June.

It was rumoured earlier this week that “Major” had signed a pre-contract with Chiefs' arch-rivals Orlando Pirates after failing to agree on personal terms with SuperSport United.

But the Buccaneers Administration Manager, Floyd Mbele, distanced the club from speculation linking the Chiefs forward with a possible move.

Speaking , Baxter hinted that he did not have a problem working with Majoro, but his complaint following his lack of regular game time left the coach in the dark not knowing if the player intends to leave or stay at the club.

“I did not have a problem to work with Majoro when he was here. Majoro came to a conclusion that he needed more game time than what he got at the club. At the moment it throws us in limbo not knowing if Major is coming or going. The situation is now a right-off. We are not in bad terms with him. As things stand, Majoro will not play for us and will have to find his next address,” Baxter said on the Chiefs' official website.

The former AmaZulu striker is expected to leave Amakhosi following the signing of Mamelodi Sundowns striker Katlego Mphela.

“Killer” penned a three-year deal with the Phefeni Glamour Boys this week which will run from July 1.

Majoro currently finds himself in a queue behind strike partners Bernard Parker, Kingston Nkhatha and Knowledge Musona.

It remains to be seen where Majoro’s next destination would be.

Majoro joined Chiefs from AmaZulu in July 2011.
