Footballer of the Year Sibusiso Vilakazi does not look to be heading overseas … just yet.

The promise of a move to Denmark has seemingly gone cold for the 24-year-old, who swept the boards at May’s end of the season Premier Soccer League awards.

It had been expected he would be on his way to Europe for the new season after being named the league’s top player after the last campaign.

Vilakazi had trials with Danish club Brondby during last season and he was due to go back but no firm offer for the midfielder has emerged, officials have admitted.

Brondby, who have a co-operation agreement with Wits, have not made any firm move to try and buy the Meadowlands-born midfielder, who has four Bafana Bafana caps.

Instead Vilakazi has stayed home, preparing for the new season at Wits’ training camp in Stellenbosch under coach Gavin Hunt.

While club officials insist they are trying to help Vilakazi realise his dream to go and play overseas, they will also be pleased he is staying for the foreseeable future.

Wits lost another key midfielder Papy Faty to a long term knee injury and to also lose Vilakazi would have been a major blow to the club’s hopes of challenging for the PSL title this season.
