The clubs president, Ilhan Cavcav, has now confirmed that Baxter has inked a deal with the club and is set to mentor the team in the upcoming season.

"The agreement that we have reached today needs the approval of the board of directors and I have submitted it to them."

The club concluded the season with a 9th place finish in the league.

Genclerbirligi had previous connections with Chiefs in the past.
