Chiefs & Pirates Target Extends Wits Deal

James Keene Has Committed His Future To Bidvest Wits

By Soccer Laduma - Jun 23, 2017 01:15 PM
He may have been a target for Kaizer Chiefs and Orlando Pirates, but James Keene is going nowhere for the time being having extended his stay with Bidvest Wits.
 
 
The 31-year-old averaged more than a goal every two games in the Absa Premiership following his move to South Africa in 2016, and was able to help the Clever Boys clinch the league title in his first full season at the club.
 
Keene’s contract with Wits was due to expire at the end of this month, however the Siya crew has been informed that the player has put pen to paper on a new deal.
 
The Englishman had attracted interest from the likes of the Amakhosi, the Buccaneers and SuperSport United as he approached the end of his deal in Braamfontein, however he did previously tell the Siya crew that he was happy at Wits and was not looking to move on.
 
 
Wits’ CEO, Jose Ferreira, has now confirmed to the crew that Keene will be with the team next season as they look to defend their league title.

Soccer Laduma target not Chiefs target. Chiefs want Teenage Hadebe and he is going to play for Chiefs. Pienaar is also SL target.

Kaizer Chiefs players now average 26 years...We got rid of 30 year olds and remained with the ones to help the younger guys...Why would we ''target'' a 30 year old who failed his trial with Baxter and spent most of last season injured....Lieduma recycling and cooking stories as usual during off season
