Confirmed: Wits Sign Claasen

By Shaistah Kader - Jun 29, 2017 01:24 PM @Shaistah_K

Bidvest Wits have completed the signing of Bafana Bafana international, Daylon Claasen, bolstering Head Coach Gavin Hunt’s squad for the new 2017/18 campaign.

The Siya crew revealed yesterday, June 28, that Wits were leading the race to land Claasen, after reports of interest from the likes of Mamelodi Sundowns and Kaizer Chiefs.

Coach Hunt subsequently confirmed to media last night, June 28, that the player will report to the Students today, with a conclusion of a medical and a deal pending.

The 27-year-old has spent almost a decade plying his trade in Europe, after making the move to Ajax Amsterdam from Ajax Cape Town in 2008.

Now, as his contract with German-based side, 1860 Munich comes to an end tomorrow, June 30, the player has put pen to paper on what is reportedly a multimillion-rand deal with the 2016/17 Absa Premiership champions.

The club confirmed the news on their official Twitter account.

Bidvest Wits have to be commended for their ambition. This team ia really doing well when it comes to reinforcing their team with quality players.Orlando Pirates and Kaizer Chiefs are slowly lacking behind as their is now a new order coming into reconing in SA football. Teams such as Sundowns, Wits and Supersport have overtaken the Soweto giants
