Bidvest Wits have turned down interest shown in Sipho Mngomezulu effectively making him available for selection in the first team yet again after having been told he wasn't in the club's plans last year.
Mngomezulu hasn't played any competitive football so far this season as Wits had 'parked' him aside honouring his contract even though he wasn't training with the club over the last six months due to the fact that he wasn't in the plans when Antonio Lopez Habas was still in charge.
The 30 year-old is already sweating it out with the rest of the Wits first team and will continue to do so after interest – believed to have been from AmaZulu and University of Pretoria – was turned down.
"Based on the situation that Mngomezulu had been in over the last few months we had sought opportunities for him but when we went to the club (Wits) last week they indicated to us that they are not willing to let him go.
"He has a running contract with the club and will stay on for its duration," says Alban Newman of ProSport International, the agency representing Mngomezulu.
Mngomezulu appears to have made an impression on new coach Clive Barker and will now be available for selection when the league resumes in February.
