New Wits coach Gavin Hunt is set to make a number of changes to his squad in his first task, to turn the side into a force to be reckoned with in the league.
Soccer-Laduma has been told that some of the players from the squad of last season will be shown the door. Sboniso Gumede, Sandile Sibande and Ofentse Nato are some of the players expected to leave.
Ironically, Gumede recently had his contract extended by the side following his sterling performances during the course of last season. Meanwhile, Hunt is hoping to add a few more players to his squad before the start of the new season. As was previously revealed by Soccer-Laduma, the club has agreed in principle to sign Benjamin Mwaruwari from Chippa United. University of Pretoria left back Junior Sibande is a target of Wits, while Maritzburg United central defender Mario Booysen could reunite with his former coach at the Students.
The Jomo Cosmos duo of Lehlohonolo Nonyane and Siyabonga Nhlapo may also be among the players joining Wits in the near future.
