Cape Town - Kaizer Chiefs Football Manager Bobby Motaung admits that the club could sign more players before the end of the transfer window.

The Naturena club already revealed eight new signings in their first press conference ahead of the 2016/17 season.

Sport24 reported that Sibusiso Khumalo, Ramahlwe Mphahlele and Keagan Buchanan have all penned three-year deals with the Sowetan side.

Meanwhile, Motaung said that reinforcements were necessary to reclaim top spot in the Absa Premiership.

“It is no secret that we had an underwhelming 2015/16 season,” said Motaung.

“It was important for us to reflect and recognise that we deserve better. Accordingly, we made the necessary changes to ensure we bring the smiles back to the loyal Amakhosi faithful and our sponsors.

“We are delighted to welcome all the new players to Kaizer Chiefs. They will inject new energy into the Amakhosi family,” he continued.

“All these footballers are accomplished players with a wealth of top flight experience and we have every confidence that they will represent the club with great distinction as we endeavour to return to our rightful position in South African football.”

The Football Manager hinted at the prospect of more new signings ahead of new campaign.

“We always have an eye open for any player we feel can add value to the team and if we come across anyone that fits the description and is available, we shall certainly be interested in entertaining the possibilities," added Motaung.
