Word reaching the Siya crew is that Wits and AmaZulu are currently in discussions with regards to the possible transfer of defender, Mbulelo ‘OJ’ Mabizela.
The future of the former Tottenham Hotspur man has been up in the air for a while now after it was revealed that he had been deemed surplus to requirements in Braamfontein.
However, after a move to Chippa United broke down it seemed as though the defender may have been forced to remain with the Clever Boys until his contract ran out in June.
Now, Jose Ferreira, the Wits CEO, has told the crew that AmaZulu are chasing the ex-Mamelodi Sundowns man’s signature. He said, “Mabizela’s possible transfer to Chippa United is now definitely off, however we are now in talks with AmaZulu about him.”
Usuthu’s head coach, Craig Rosslee, is keen to add some steel to his back four as he attempts to save the club from relegation and it seems as though Mabizela has been earmarked as the man for that job.
