Wits And Maritzburg Complete Swap Deal
Bidvest Wits And Maritzburg United Complete Swap Deal
Bidvest Wits’ Thato Thlone has completed a move to Maritzburg United in a swap deal with Denis Weidlich.
The Students confirmed earlier this week that they have landed the signature of Maritzburg’s Weidlich on a pre-contract which would have only seen him meet up with the Braamfontein-outfit at the end of his contract on June 30 this year.
However, it has since been confirmed to the Siya crew by Maritzburg’s Quintin Jettoo, that Weidlich will be joining the Clever Boys this month in a swap deal which will see Thlone go in the opposite direction.
Wits acquired the signing of Thlone in January last year, although, made just three appearances for Head Coach Gavin Hunt’s side since his arrival from Free State Stars.
However, the 26-year-old will now look to reignite his professional career with the Team of Choice, while the Students add Weidlich to their books to provide cover in their defensive department.
