Scott trained with Wits before the Christmas break, and KickOff.com understands a deal between the two parties is on the table and ready to be signed.
"Cape Town City and Ajax were interested. He is expected to sign with Wits this week," says a source.
The former Ajax Cape Town man recently returned home after a spell with Slovakian side Slovan Bratislava.
Scott spent his entire PSL career at Ajax before joining Slovan in January 2016.
