KAIZER Chiefs are confident of getting their man as the other options for striker Knowledge Musona remain limited and a deadline to exercise an option on him draws closer.
Contractually, Chiefs have the first option on the services of the “Silent Assassin” and the club’s football manager Bobby Motaung says he is confident they will secure the services of the Zimbabwean international for the coming season.
“We are hopeful that no one will come in for him and with our first option, we will then be able to agree something at the end of the month.
“We can do a loan or an outright buy. We must still decide about these two options.”
Musona had been hoping for another chance to play in Europe and is currently in Germany.
His club Hoffenheim are still to decide his future but increasingly look to have only the option of Chiefs on the table as no other bids have been made for the 24-year-old.
Amakhosi’s deal has been on the table for some time and Motaung is confident they need only wait until the end of the month before they are entitled to secure Musona’s services.
It then remains to be decided whether they buy him back or loan him again.
