Midfielder Phumlani Ntshangase is set to walk away free from Bidvest Wits after spending almost six years with the club.
Ntshangase's contract with Wits is set to expire in June next year.
The KwaZulu-Natal-born midfielder has spent the past two seasons away from the Students and been loaned to both SuperSport United and Maritzburg United.
According to a source close to Ntshangase, the player has made up his mind and is not returning to Wits next season.
"A player cannot go away for two seasons. It's clear that he is not part of the club's plans," the source tells KickOff.com.
"The club has also not indicated if they will renew his contract and the player has already made up his mind."
Ntshangase is free to sign a pre contract with any club in the next two weeks.
