Cape Town - Kaizer Chiefs football manager Bobby Motaung says their transfer policy is not about signing big-name players.

Chiefs have so far made 10 new signings ahead of the new campaign, including Ramahlwe Mphahlele, Keagan Buchanan and Enocent Mkhabela.

However, Amakhosi lost the race to sign 2014 PSL Footballer of the Season Sibusiso Vilakazi to Mamelodi Sundowns.

This week, Chiefs confirmed the signing of teenage striker Ryan Moon from Maritzburg United and the promotion of Siyabonga Ngezana from the development ranks.

"We don't sign for a 'wow' as a team; we don't go for a 'wow, wow, wow'. We look at players' tactical abilities, technical abilities and their quality, and who are future prospects," Motaung told KickOff.

"That's why we also have an academy, and that's why we also look at youngsters like Moon, the other youngsters Ngezana and all these.

"We are looking at the future because that's an investment we have. If you look at the Naturena facility, it's long term, so we need generations that will also come in and add value."
