Wits have succeeded in their efforts to secure Benjani Mwaruwari for the upcoming 2013/14 PSL season.
Soccer-Laduma revealed last week that Mwaruwari was a target for The Students, with the Braamfontein club now having all but concluded the deal.
Mwaruwari and Wits have agreed on terms, with deal currently being finalised.
Wits CEO, Jose Ferreira, confirmed that the deal is being concluded with the finer details being ironed out. The deal is expected to be finalised soon, with the player expected to turn out for the Gavin Hunt-coached outfit in the new camapign.
“Yes, you are correct. The deal is as good as done,” said Ferreira, Wits’ CEO.
With the deal having been agreed to in principle, an official announcement from the club is expected to be made in the near future.
The striker played for Chippa United this past season, after signing with the club in February. However, he left this past month due to contractual disputes between himself and the club’s management.
