Cape Town - Bidvest Wits coach Gavin Hunt has labelled the South African transfer market as "ridiculous" after signing several players on the cheap.
Despite being backed by Bidvest's billionaire, Brian Joffe, Wits have been quiet in the transfer market.
They have bolstered their squad by making smart signings where they didn't spend a cent on transfer fees as they secured the services of Elias Pelembe, Daine Klate, Nazeer Allie, Kris Bright, Keaghan Jacobs and Gerald Phiri.
"It's hard to do business in this market because there are a lot of people who are generally unreasonable and players are overpriced," Hunt told Football411.
"It's very difficult to do business in the local market. Clubs don't want to sell to us because they think that we are threat.
"We haven't bought a single player this season. All our players were free agents. That's the market we have to work in.
"There are big clubs who haven't bought that much because it's a very difficult market.
"It's unrealistic throughout the world, not only in South Africa. It's just that South Africa has gone a little bit ridiculous."
