Cape Town - Bidvest Wits midfielder Papy Faty will not feature for the club this season due to a knee injury, coach Gavin Hunt has revealed.

The Burundi international has been sidelined since late April after injuring ankle ligaments during a league clash with Orlando Pirates, and has twice gone under the knife to repair the damage.

It was initially hoped that the 24-year-old would feature at some stage this season, but it appears this will not be the case.

"Papy will not play this season and probably will be back into action next season," Hunt has been quoted as saying after Friday night's victory over AmaZulu.

Hunt's comments come despite the player himself having recently indicated that he hoped to return to the fray in January.

The Clever Boys welcome Moroko Swallows to the Bidvest Stadium as they duel for a quarter-final place in the Telkom Knockout on Friday, October 3 at 20:00.
