The Siya crew has been informed that Bidvest Wits are close to completing the signing of Swaziland International Banele ‘Pupu’ Sikhondze, who was previously linked with Polokwane City.
The 24-year-old dribbling wizard has been heavily linked with a move to South Africa for some time. The Siya crew previously reported that the Mbabane Swallows man was earmarked for a move to Rise and Shine while Wits were also closely monitoring the player.
Following a trial period with the Clever Boys, sources have indicated that the midfielder has impressed the Wits technical team and that he is close to completing a deal with the club.
“I can tell you that Polokwane were looking at him but are no longer in a position to sign him. He has however impressed at Wits and it looks like they will be making an offer to sign him,” said a source.
Meanwhile, the crew has reported that the side is also keen on signing Mxolisi Macuphu from Chippa United in a bid to bolster the squad following a disappointing season where they finished in 13th spot.
