Cape Town - SuperSport United coach Stuart Baxter says he's heard no news with regards to him taking over as the Bafana Bafana head coach.
SuperSport announced last month that they would potentially entertain the idea of Baxter ending his contract with them and joining the national team setup at the end of the current domestic season.
Bafana have been without a head coach since Shakes Mashaba was sacked in December 2016.
It then emerged that Baxter had reportedly asked SAFA to allow his son Lee to be given the national team goalkeeper coaching job, should he accept the chance to take charge of Bafana for a second time.
Since then, and with SAFA already several weeks overdue in announcing the new coach, very little has been said on the matter.
And Baxter says he's currently in the dark as much as the public are.
"What can I tell you? I think the SAFA hierarchy has been away. I think they have spoken to SuperSport and it's an impasse that means I am not in the loop, I am (not) negotiating with anybody," he was quoted saying by KickOff website.
"I can't tell you any more. If you call SuperSport and speak to them."
It is believed SAFA president Danny Jordaan and CEO Dennis Mumble have been in the United States on official business.
SuperSport are set to take on Mamelodi Sundowns on Wednesday night, looking to avenge the 5-0 hammering they suffered to their city rivals last week.
