Cape Town - Golden Arrows assistant coach Mandla Ncikazi has hinted strongly that the club are in the running to sign Mamelodi Sundowns goalkeeper Thela Ngobeni.
Ngobeni is out of favour at Chloorkop and is behind the likes of Denis Onyango, Kennedy Mweene and Reyaad Pieterse in the pecking order.
The player is yet to feature in 2018/19 with so much competition for a starting position in the team.
Ncikazi confirmed Arrows were interested in signing a keeper like Ngobeni due to an injury to Maximilian Mbaeva.
He told Daily Sun: "The process is still ongoing and what makes it so difficult is that the candidate that we are looking at recruiting into the club, the other clubs are doing the same.
"So there is competition there. But we'll be content staying with the group that we have, considering the fact that it looks like the recovery of Max Mbaeva is progressing well.
"At this current stage, I wouldn't be sure whether he recovers soon, whether we need a replacement, and also based on the negotiation with the recruit that we want to bring in to the club.
"But we were talking to a certain goalkeeper and truly so I know, but I don't know the progress of negotiations."
In addition, some reports suggest that Kaizer Chiefs are also monitoring the services of Ngobeni, with Itumeleng Khune ruled out for the rest of the season.
