Wits assessing ex-Bucs midfielder

Masuku has surfaced at Sturrock Park with the hopes of impressing coach Gavin Hunt, after being released by Bloemfontein Celtic earlier this month.

The 32-year-old winger made just one appearance under coach Veselin Jelusic this season, coming on as a substitute in Celtic's opening league clash against Kaizer Chiefs.

With Wits in dire need of escaping the relegation scrap, Hunt has already done a considerable amount of business in the current transfer window, bringing in no less than six players while letting go of four others thus far.

Should Masuku manage to land himself a deal, he will have to compete with the likes of Sifiso Myeni, Daylon Claasen and Elias Pelembe for a place on the right flank.
