Cape Town - Bidvest Wits attacker Papy Faty will undergo medical tests after collapsing on the field of play for a second time this season.

The 25-year-old suffered a health scare when he fell to the ground during the 1-1 draw with Chippa United at the weekend.

Faty had previously been sidelined for three months after suffering a blackout in a friendly against SuperSport United and being hospitalised in December.

"This is a precautionary measure. The club is now medically re-assessing the situation and for now there is no physical activity for him," Wits CEO Jose Ferreira told KickOff.

"We will be guided by what comes out of the re-assessment. There is not much else to say now."
