Cape Town - Kaizer Chiefs are reportedly interested in securing the services of Tefu Mashamaite just for one season after the defender left the club.

Amakhosi are currently in a rebuilding phase and are looking to acquire a number of players following a disappointing 2015/16 Premiership campaign, with BK Hacken centre-back Mashamaite being touted as a marquee signing for Steve Komphela's side.

According to reports in the local press, Komphela has met with the 31-year-old for talks although nothing concrete is said to have come from the discussions. The Soweto giants will face stiff competition SuperSport United, who are also keen on signing Mashamaite.

Former Chiefs coach Stuart Baxter, who is now at the helm of Matsatsantsa, confirmed his interest in reuniting with the former Glamour Boys star, having coached him for three seasons at Naturena.

"I would definitely be interested in Masha were he to become available," Baxter told the Sunday Times. "In principle, I am always interested in Masha. I spoke to him a while ago, checking up on his injury.

"A player like Masha has got basic education in how to defend intelligently. He is top quality by South African standards. Everybody is trying to strengthen."
