Cape Town - Wits coach Gavin Hunt has confirmed that former Mamelodi Sundowns and Kaizer Chiefs left-back Sibusiso Khumalo won't be offered a deal.

Khumalo's fortunes as a player have stagnated in recent seasons as he was hardly used at Sundowns before finding more regular football as a starter with SuperSport United.

After leaving United following 54 Premiership appearances in three seasons, he joined Kaizer Chiefs but made just 12 starts over two campaigns.

The 29-year-old then moved on to Ajax Cape Town but was again not able to enjoy massive success in the National First Divison.

As such, it seems the player's career is at a crossroads after Hunt confirmed he would not be offered a contract following a trial period.

He told KickOff: "No we haven't decided anything, we can't sign him.

"No we are not signing him. We've got people in his position. He is not there [at Wits training] anymore."
