Thlone Pulls A No Show At Wits Amid Bucs Interest
Thato Thlone Not At Bidvest Wits
Thato Thlone has not reported for pre-season training at Bidvest Wits, despite him signing a pre-contract with the club.
The defender signed a pre-contract with Wits earlier this year, as confirmed by the Braamfontein outfit in January. As reported by the Siya crew, the left-back has reportedly also agreed to a deal with Orlando Pirates.
Wits returned for pre-season training on Monday. Thlone was notably not with the league champions, although the Students did indicate that the player’s deal with them would be ‘with effect from July 01’ when the signing was announced.
“Thlone has not reported for pre-season training at Wits. Wits have returned for pre-season training today and Thlone was not there,” a source told the Siya crew.
It remains to be seen if the player will go to Wits or end up with Bucs for the 2017/18 season.
