Cape Town Bidvest Wits have announced Bongani Khumalo will remain at the club for at least one more season after they took up an option to extend his contract.

The 29-year-old defender joined SuperSport United on a free transfer at the start of last season after his contract with Tottenham Hotspur ran down.

However, Khumalo only lasted six months at the Pretoria club before joining the Clever Boys in January on a short-term deal, after failing to earn a regular place in the SSU starting XI.

The Bafana Bafana international reportedly only wanted a short stay at Wits before attempting to return to Europe, but it seems that too has been put off for another 12 months.

"Yes, we have exercised the option with Bongani Khumalo but unfortunately the documents are not with me at the moment to tell you the number of years signed," Wits CEO Jose Ferreira told KickOff.

Gavin Hunt's side finished second in the Premiership last season, a full 14 points behind champions Mamelodi Sundowns, and will be looking to close that gap and make an effective challenge for the title this time around.
