Cape Town - Cape Town City chairperson John Comitis has revealed that his club are keen on signing Bafana Bafana winger Mandla Masango.

Masango made his name at Kaizer Chiefs before moving to Randers FC in Denmark three seasons ago. He returned to South Africa last season for a loan spell with SuperSport United before going back to Denmark.

"We spoke to Mandla," Comitis told The Star. "The problem is that he is committed. The transfer fee that his club are asking is beyond our reach.

"Right now we can't talk to Mandla since it is outside the transfer window, which means we can only talk to his club."

On Mamelodi Sundowns winger Billiat, the Citizens boss has cooled talk of a possible swoop for the former Ajax Cape Town man.

"I'm sure everyone would be interested in a player like Khama Billiat, but right now he is not in our sights. He is not in my plans at the moment," he said.

City have in recent weeks also been linked to Chiefs goalkeeper, Brilliant Khuzwayo in a bid to strengthen their squad with the player becoming increasingly frustrated at a lack of playing time.
