The Broken Deal That Led To Claasen’s Wits Move

Daylon Claasen Very Nearly Didn't Come Back To South Africa

By Joe Crann - Jun 30, 2017 10:04 AM @YesWeCrann
The misfortune of a German club has been to Bidvest Wits’ gain, with Daylon Claasen set to turn out in the Absa Premiership rather than the Bundesliga 2 next season.
 
 
Claasen, 27, recently penned a contract with the Clever Boys after deciding to make a return to South Africa after nearly a decade in Europe, although it nearly didn’t happen after impressing Würzburger Kickers last year.
 
The Siya crew has been informed that Kickers, who were seventh in the league and pushing for promotion, had an agreement with Claasen regarding a move once his 1860 Munich contract came to an end, with the attacker set to join the join the club in July.
 
However, a crazy string of results saw Kickers win just one game in the second half of the season, losing 10 of their last 16 games, with the club being relegated to the third tier at the end of the 2016/17 season. 
 
 
Their relegation meant that, once it was confirmed, Claasen was able to pull out of the move, but it meant that he had to move quickly in order to get himself a new club for the 2017/18 campaign.
 
Claasen will now be looking to prove his worth with the Clever Boys as he looks to play his first PSL game since leaving the country as a teenager nearly 10 years ago.

@MR.Bucs dont mislead kids wena son, Toothless one didn't try to renew Krol's contract. Krol was willing to stay but your cowrman made a decision to replace him already.

I've seen this boy at national team juniors and senior level, i can tell you this is just an average player i would be dissapointed if he join Bucs, i rather have madala like Pienaar or Modise than this boy even Granwarld Scot is better than this boy.
