Cape Town City chairman John Comitis has confirmed the club's interest in Denmark-based midfielder Mandla Masango.
The South African international is expected to leave Danish Superliga side Randers FC during the January Transfer Window
“With Masango I had on principle agreed with his club on the terms to get him here," Comitis said on IOL.
"He could have been playing with us as of January, but at this stage we can’t match his demands.
"So he won’t be with the club in January unless his changes his views," he added.
City are also keen to sign Kaizer Chiefs goalkeeper Brilliant Khuzwayo and his agent Tim Sukazi has already confirmed the Citizens' interest in the shot-stopper.
Comitis said they would love to get in talks with him, but not before next month as Khuzwayo is under contract until June, 2018.
“I’m going to launch it in the first seven days (of the transfer window). You will see three signings but I’m keeping very quite," he said.
"There’ll be two foreign players in that mix and possible one local one.
"For me we need to remain competitive. Players need to know that they’ve got to keep on working. Aubrey Ngoma is like a new signing for us," he concluded.
