Mumuni Abubakar and Emmanuel Baffour have been spotted training with Wits’ first team.
The two Ghanaians are contracted to Mamelodi Sundowns until June 2014, but the duo are thought not to be in Pitso Mosimane’s plans for the new season.
A Siya crew source confirmed the presence of the pair at Wits’ training ground today, Tuesday, June 25.
Abubakar, a Ghana junior international midfielder up until U23 level, made no appearances for Downs in 2012/13. Baffour, a Ghana ‘B’ international striker, made just three.
With Downs’ squad already fairly over inflated with personnel, it seems clear that a move elsewhere makes sense for the pair.
Gavin Hunt is expected to run the rule over both players, as Wits go through their pre-season training preparations. The Siya crew will monitor their situation and keep you updated.
