Hunt Confirms Wits’ Swoop For Big Name Duo

Gavin Hunt Has Confirmed That Bidvest Wits Are Closing In On Two Players

By Joe Crann - Jun 29, 2017 01:42 AM @YesWeCrann
Gavin Hunt has confirmed that Bidvest Wits are closing in on both Daylon Claasen and Thami Sangweni, with the former arriving for training at the club on Thursday.
 
 
The Siya crew reported on Wednesday that the Clever Boys were interested in bringing Claasen back from Germany after his 1860 Munich contract comes to an end this month, while Thamsanqa Sangweni was spotted at the club’s training.
 
Claasen, 27, and Sangweni, 28, have both been linked with several other clubs in South Africa in recent months, however it would appear that it is Hunt who will have them available to him going into the 2017/18 season.
 
Regarding Claasen, Hunt said, “He’s coming in the morning. I feel that with Ngele going we need a pass. Every team needs that final ball, and I feel he can give us that.”
 
The attacking midfielder has spent almost a decade in Europe having left Ajax Cape Town for Ajax Amsterdam as a teenager back in 2008.
 
Meanwhile, on the topic of Sangweni he replied, “Yeah, he’s with us at the moment. They’re negotiating about it, he came today (Wednesday).”
 
Hunt also suggested that they were looking for a ‘big’ striker ahead of the new campaign, although wouldn’t go into any further detail.

Hunt is a serious coach who does not like lazy players, he will defend the title, his signings speak volumes, unlike a hopeless import from Sweden who lacks direction, NFD is looming next season for Pirates, they should ask Swallows, the result of stupid management

While other teams are busy fortifying their squads Irvin Is conspiciuos by his loud silence. The next thing you find him forcing players to play for Pirates like he has always done with Dumisa Ngobe, Siphelele Mthembu, Siyabonga Sangweni to count a few as if Pirates was not allowed to sign players while there was still time. This Thlone issue and Ayabulelwa Maqhwaka is what Pirates is famous for...

Yhoooo Wits, hayi the questiion is not a 'Can Hunt defend the title' but is for how many times. Mr. I know the address must hire a new 'PI' because Gavin doesn't keep league title loney in his cabinet, he will even give you right how number but with wrong street. The one in Pitso's pocket is not a correct one.
