Pienaar Set For January Wits Exit
Bidvest Wits Could Let Steven Pienaar Go In January
Steven Pienaar’s return to the Absa Premiership with Bidvest Wits looks to be short-lived, with the Clever Boys looking to release him in the January transfer window.
The 35-year-old has played 11 games for Wits since joining them at the start of the season, although he hasn’t made the impact that Gavin Hunt will have been hoping for from such an experienced player.
Pienaar’s return to South Africa after spending over a decade and a half playing in Europe was seen as a coup for the reigning league champions when he was announced, but he has been given just four starts and has been largely underwhelming.
Now, according to Siya sources, there is talk of ‘Schillo’ leaving Wits in the upcoming transfer window as they seek changes in order to turn around their season and climb their way up the table.
It remains to be seen whether Pienaar will be sold or whether the club will look to agree to a mutual termination if they do decide that he has become surplus to requirements.
