Cape Town - Former Kaizer Chiefs goalkeeper William Shongwe believes Felix Badenhorst would be an excellent addition to the Amakhosi squad for next season.

Bandenhorst, who current plays for Mbabane Swallows in Swaziland, has been caught the eye of a number of Premiership clubs including Chiefs, Bidvest Wits and Free State Stars after his phenomenal performances for Swaziland at the recently concluded COSAFA Cup.

The 27-year-old last played in South Africa in 2011 for Jomo Cosmos.

"His return is long overdue. At Cosmos he was a bit slower but his game now is more influential. He's not just an attacking player but he's very helpful in defence," Shongwe told KickOff.

"In today's market he's worth R1million. If he was playing locally [in South Africa] he would be worth more, it's just that he's coming from Swaziland. He's full value for the money.

"We came from Swaziland, we didn't only make numbers, and we made a difference. We made a big impact, that's why today we are called Chiefs legends. Felix is not a fancy player but he's an effective player, a team player. He's made a big statement at international level."
