Baxter Confirms Mahlangu Interest

Baxter Confirms Mahlangu Interest

By Joe Crann - Dec 23, 2013 09:44 AM @YesWeCrann

Stuart Baxter, the head coach of Kaizer Chiefs, has told Swedish website, Fotboll Skanalen, that he has been in touch with Amakhosi target, May Mahlangu.

The Siya crew recently reported that Chiefs could look to offer the Bafana Bafana international a short-term contract at Naturena while he regains match fitness following the Achilles injury that has kept him out for a number of months.

Mahlangu recently left his former club, Helsingborgs IF, after his contract in Sweden came to an end, with the player seeking to use the opportunity to secure himself a move elsewhere in Europe.

However, it seems that Baxter is eager to persuade the 24-year-old midfielder to undergo a stint back in South Africa, confirming his interest to FotbollSkanalen.se.

Baxter, who spent many years coaching in Sweden, reportedly told them, “Yeah, we want him. I've talked with May. He has been in touch with me and wanted advice on his game and he is interested in how things are at Kaizer Chiefs. He has also been in touch during his injury to maybe get a little encouragement.

“I've had a good relationship with May and he is thinking about his future, so I told him and his agent Rob Moore that it might be interesting for him to play up here at home. I do not know exactly how he wants it, but we have demonstrated our interest.”

Chiefs have been linked with a number of players leading up to the January transfer window, with George Maluleka believed to be very high up on their list of targets.

Meanwhile, there is believed to be several clubs in Europe showing a keen interest in Mahlangu, with teams in France, Turkey and Spain all thought to be keeping an eye on him.
