Cape Town - Bidvest Wits veteran defender Matthew Booth’s future remains uncertain. The club will hold a meeting with Booth before the players return for pre-season training on the 24th of June, the outcome of which will decide whether he's staying or going.
The 37-year-old's contract with Wits expires at the end of the month.
“We will meet with him (Booth) and talk about his future because you must remember that he is a senior player. In his case it is different (no option on his contract) as we need to engage him and get to have an understanding of where he stands before any decision is made,” Wits CEO Jose Ferreira told the KickOff.com website.
Booth started 19 games and came on as a substitute in another four matches in all competitions this past season, with most of his appearances coming before Christmas as he was then relegated to the bench by the impressive Kwanda Mngonyama in the new year.
The Wits defender made his professional debut back in 1996 at Cape Town Spurs and joined the Students last year in July. Getting on in age, Booth may look to hang up his boots all together.
