JOHANNESBURG - Striker Lehlohonolo Majoro will train with Kaizer Chiefs reserve players until the end of the season, agent Tim Sukazi said on Monday.

Majoro signed a pre-contract agreement with Orlando Pirates that will see him join the club at the end of the season.

But the player failed to agree a deal with Pirates to move during the January transfer window.

The player has also been informed by Chiefs coach Stuart Baxter that he will no longer be considered for selection as the season continues.

Sukazi confirmed that Majoro will not be training with the first team.

He says his client will be ready to contribute should Baxter need him.

"He will be following the training programmes that are given to him by Kaizer Chiefs. If one day there is a need for him and they call him into the first team, he will be able to do it. Contractually, he is still their player."

Sukazi also touched on the fact the two clubs failed to reach an agreement over an immediate move for Majoro.

"The initially proposed transfer amount was somewhere in the region of R2 million. Close to the end of the window, Chiefs had already halved the price to R1 million. With that being the case at the time, I thought the deal was as good as done. But by the close of business on the last day of the transfer window, there was no further movement from Pirates."

Sukazi says Majoro is not ruling himself out of playing for Chiefs again this season.

"The door is not shut for Baxter to use the player. Majoro is available and at the coach's disposal. If that call is made by Baxter, Majoro might just show up in the Kaizer Chiefs first team. For the time being and with the way I see the situation at the moment, it doesn't look positive at all."
