Cape Town - Kaizer Chiefs has thanked Siboniso Gaxa for his services to the club after confirming that the defender had joined Bidvest Wits.
Amakhosi confirmed on its website that the right-back who made 133 appearances for the Soweto giants had joined Wits after providing the player with his clearance.
"Kaizer Chiefs can confirm that the Club was approached by Bidvest Wits to provide them with Siboniso Gaxa’s clearance. We duly provided them with the clearance and he has now signed with Wits," a club statement said.
"We would like to thank him for his service to Amakhosi and wish him well in the future."
The 32-year-old had been training with Wits but was prevented from signing for the Clever Boys as he was embroiled in a legal dispute with Chiefs, contesting that he still had an existing contract with the club, after being released.
The defender was given the go-ahead by the PSL's Dispute Resolution Chamber to sign with Gavin Hunt's team as they reached a decision on his case.
Gaxa was seeking compensation for his dismissal and has been waiting for an outcome on this dispute since June. The defender was a stalwart on the right for the Amakhosi during his four seasons at Naturena.
