We're in the process of doing a deal for him.[LNB]"He's not expensive. We had him over on trial and we like him. [LNB]"He's got potential and we've got a tie up with the club Supersports so we've taken him on."[LNB]Khumalo, who was born in Swaziland, scored for his country during this summer's World Cup win over France.[LNB]His arrival will be a significant boost to Redknapp, who has seen Michael Dawson join fellow centre-back Jonathan Woodgate on the long-term injury list this season.[LNB]Redknapp continued: "It will be a great chance for the kid.
