The 30-year-old has not conceded a goal in 12 of his 20 league appearances for Amakhosi this season, which means he kept a clean sheet in 60% of his games.
After missing the first two matches of the campaign, Khune has started the past 20 PSL games for Chiefs and his clean sheet record puts him on par with Europe's best shot-stoppers.
Atletico Madrid goalkeeper Jan Oblak has managed to keep an impressive 17 clean sheets in the Spanish top flight already this season. The 25-year-old has conceded in only nine out of his 26 appearances for the Rojiblancos in 2017/18, meaning he has kept a clean sheet in 65% of the games he has played.
The Slovenia international is followed by FC Barcelona's Marc-Andre ter Stegen, who has – like Khune – kept a clean sheet in 60% of his games, having conceded in only 10 of his 25 appearances in LaLiga so far in this campaign.
Manchester United's De Gea completes the top three after preventing his Premier League opponents from scoring in 15 of his 28 matches this campaign, which equals a clean sheet rate of 53.6%.
