Malawian midfielder Gerald Phiri Jnr will have to wait longer before becoming available to play as Bidvest Wits continue to work on issues relating to his registration with the PSL.
Phiri signed for Wits three months ago from Zimbabwean club Caps United but is yet to be registered with the PSL due to some delays in the processing of his paperwork.
His registration was initially delayed by a temporary ban on his former club that prohibited them from transferring players but those sanctions were lifted towards the end of August, paving the way for the completion of Phiri’s move.
However, further delays related to paperwork have meant he remains unregistered two months into the season.
“We are still working on that issue and are still working on his registration. He is still training with the rest of the squad,” says a Wits official.
Wits still have one foreign spot open after registering Papy Faty, Wangu Gome, Kris Bright and Joaquim Lupeta as four of the five foreign players each club is allowed to register.
