Cape Town - Dynamos striker Christian Ntouba Epoupa's hopes of joining South African champions Wits have been dashed through injury.

Epoupa had been set to undergo a two-week trial with the Clever Boys, but injured his ankle in his first session.

The Cameroon-born marksman will now be out for a month and will leave Wits to re-join Zimbabwean giants Dynamos for the time being.

Epoupa's manager Gilbert Sengwe confirmed the news.

"It's unfortunate that Christian got injured on his first day of training with Bidvest Wits. He is already on his way to Harare. According to the club, he needs almost four weeks to recover," he told NewsDay.

"We will just wait and see what happens because I am still receiving inquiries from a number of clubs, but then again he can't go while in that condition. There is nothing we can do for now, it's very unfortunate."

Epoupa scored 12 league goals for Dynamos last season, his first in the Zimbabwean Premier Soccer League.

He was voted one of the Premiership's 11 best players of the 2017 season.
