Johannes On The Move – Surprise Club Lead The Race…
He managed to get his clearance before the transfer window closed on Monday, and a surprise frontrunner has emerged in the race for his signature.
The centre back has been a target of Cape Town City’s for some time now, with Benni McCarthy making no secret of the fact that he was interested in bringing him back to the Citizens, though there were questions regarding whether he would be leaving Bidvest Wits.
Now, after securing his exit from Braamfontein, the 33-year-old is believed to have made his way onto the wishlist of Absa Premiership newbies, Stellenbosch FC, who are looking to bolster their backline as they attempt to make sure they secure their position in the top-flight next season.
Johannes’ exit on Monday means that he is not bound by the rules of the transfer window and can sign for a new team at any point, just like Fagrie Lakay and Prince Nxumalo after the Clever Boys confirmed that they too had made their departures.
The Siya crew will keep tabs on the former Orlando Pirates’ man and his situation in the coming days as he looks to sort out his future, something that he would no doubt hope to finalise sooner rather than later.
