Cape Town - Former Ajax Cape Town midfielder Granwald Scott could be in line for a return to the South African top flight after a year in Slovakia.

Scott, who spent 11 seasons in the Ajax first-team after graduating from the club's academy, joined Slovan Bratislava in the January transfer window of 2016 and helped Belasí to the 2015–16 Slovak Cup Final - where they lost out to AS Trencín.

However, the South Africa international has been spotted back in Mzanzi, training with Bidvest Wits during his side's winter break.

The midfielder spent two days with the Clever Boys where he underwent an assessment and held discussions with club officials who are believed to be very interested in snapping up the experienced player.

According to local reports, up to six clubs including Cape Town City, Ajax and Orlando Pirates are all interested in bringing the central midfielder back to the Premiership with Ajax owner Ari Efstathiou making contact with the player.

"Scott is back in the country and currently in Johannesburg where he has opened talks with Wits," read a statement published by KickOff.

"Both Ajax and Cape Town City have expressed interest to bring back the player to Cape Town in January."

Scott featured 204 times for The Urban Warriors in his eleven seasons at the iKamva-based outfit.
