Johannesburg - Wits have extended the contract of their Burundi international midfielder Papy Faty who emerged as one of their best players in the last season.

SuperSport.com reports that Faty was signed in July last year and on an initial one-year contract but with a clause for an extension of several more, which Wits have taken up.

Faty’s midfield play was among the highlights in a season in which the club finished in a surprise fourth place.

Faty, whose date of birth is given as September 1990 and will allegedly be 23 in September, played at Inter Star in Burundi and made his national team debut in 2008 before going to Trabzonspor in Turkey and playing briefly at MVV Maastricht in the Netherlands.

Wits spotted him last year playing for Burundi in Harare against Zimbabwe in an African Nations Cup qualifier, by which time he had returned to Africa and was playing at APR FC in Rwanda.

Faty made 27 starts in his debut season in the Absa Premiership, scored his first goal in the Telkom Knockout against Kaizer Chiefs and four more before the end of the campaign.
