Cape Town - New Kaizer Chiefs defender Sibusiso Khumalo is eager to learn from veteran left-back Tsepo Masilela in the upcoming season.

The 26-year-old Khumalo joined Chiefs in a swap deal with SuperSport United for Keagan Ritchie.

Khumalo was roped-in to strengthen the defence after Masilela struggled for much of the season with injuries.

Amakhosi are also going through a rebuilding process after release of a number of high-profile players, including Siyanda Xulu, Bongani Ndulula, Edward Manqele, Siphelele Mthembu, Sula Matovu and Ivan Bukenya.

"I can learn a lot from Tsepo Masilela because he has played in Europe so he has got nothing to lose," Khumalo told Goal website.

"Actually, the way I see it he can help me to grow and improve as a player to be like him because he is the best (in the country)."
