Cape Town - Gordon Igesund has revealed that he is in talks with two defensive players with the hope of signing, but couldn’t reveal their names.
Igesund spoke at the Cape Town Cup press conference on Thursday where he admitted his interest in signing Bongani Khumalo along with a couple of other players.
“We have still got to try, if we can to sign Bongani Khumalo, he’s been training with us,” the SuperSport United manager said.
“The positive thing about that is that he is enjoying every minute of it. He really is enjoying it so there might be something on the cards there.
“At the moment we are still in negotiations with two players and I can’t mention their names right now but they should be concluded maybe this week.
“And of course arriving today was Michael Boxall from New Zealand, you know Jeremy Brockie is here, and (Isaka) Cernak, our winger, hasn’t arrived yet we are waiting for his work permit still so that should take a couple of days.
“We have got a very offensive team.
“Last year we were a little bit open at the back, that’s why most of my signings have been defensive.
“Boxall is a defender, the players we are talking to are defenders, I signed (Grant) Kekana and he’s a defender.
“We needed to strengthen up that department to give more freedom to players like David Mathebula, who last year in my opinion was defending too much.”
Igesund is putting together a big squad as he looks to challenge for the PSL title.
First up, however, is the Cape Town Cup where SuperSport face Crystal Palace at 17:45 on Friday afternoon.
