Cape Town - Kaizer Chiefs search for a striker seems set to continue after it was confirmed that Nigerian trialist, Okiki Afolabi, has stopped training with Amakhosi.

The Nigerian frontman was on trial as coach Steve Komphela sought to find a player capable of giving real support to the likes of Bernard Parker, Gustavo Paez and Ryan Moon.

However, the 22-year-old has stopped training at Naturena, which seemingly indicates that the club are not interested in acquiring his services for the 2017/18 campaign.

The Glamour Boys have had several trialists come and go in the last few months with the likes of Argentine Jonatan Philippe and journeyman South African, Darren Lurie, failing to make the grade.

Afolabi now joins this list of strikers after seemingly failing to impress.

It has been a relatively low key transfer window for the Soweto giant as the side made just four signings, with Teenage Hadebe, Bhongolethu Jayiya, Philani Zulu and Dumisani Zuma coming on board.
