Goalkeeper Brandon Peterson says he will continue to work hard on his fitness levels as he waits to see where his future lies.

The 26-year-old former Ajax Cape Town shot-stopper opted to begin training with Kaizer Chiefs this season following the demise of former club Bidvest Wits.

Amakhosi's inability to buy players as a result of a transfer ban, and subsequent appeal dismissal, has left Peterson in limbo ahead of the closure of the transfer window.

The Court of Arbitration for Sport dismissed Chiefs' appeal against a two-window transfer ban on Tuesday.

Peterson and fellow Amakhosi hopefuls Phathutshedzo Nange and Sifiso Hlanti have all been affected.

Speaking to SowetanLive, Peterson said: "I was training there to get match fit and all that, you know, after coming from a minor operation I had.

"Going there obviously, nothing was for sure. What I was doing was trying to get match-fit and all that before something pops up.

"It is not the end of the world. Things happen for a reason. Every footballer in SA wants to play for one of the best teams in the country. The only thing I can do is to work hard, and if the opportunity arrives, I will take it with both hands.

"I don't know what will happen like I said, my main aim is to get fit because there is no point in signing a contract and you don't play."

Chiefs can only sign new players in the first window of the 2021/22 DStv Premiership season.
