Namibian midfielder Wangu ‘Baptista’ Gome has confirmed he is on the move following his departure from Bidvest Wits, with First Division club Stellenbosch as an option.

Gome was signed by Wits two years ago after being named as the 2015 COSAFA Castle Cup Player of the Tournament, but struggled for game-time through his time with the reigning league champions.

He has recently been training with Stellenbosch.

"My contract with Wits ran up and they didn’t renew,” he tells

"So right now I am a free agent and looking for a team preferably in South Africa. I trained with Stellenbosch but then had to come back home for my sister’s wedding.

"I am basically waiting for them [Stellenbosch] to come back to me because they are currently talking to my agent,” he says from Windhoek, Namibia.

The 24-year-old managed 14 appearances in his two years at Wits.
