The well-traveled forward has played for eight different clubs across three different countries and has managed over 50 goals since starting his professional career with Vancouver Whitecaps in 2009.

Despite being contracted to Dundee United in Scotland's Premiership for another season, it appears the 29-year-old is now intent on trying to impress coach Gavin Hunt and his technical team in order to win a contract with the students.

According to Soccer Laduma, the player started training with Wits on Friday morning as their pre-season preparations begin to intensify.

Haber came close to making a breakthrough into the English Premier League in 2009 when he was signed by West Bromwich Albion on a two-year deal, however, he failed to make an appearance for the Baggies during that time.

The 2016/17 Absa Premiership champions are looking to replace strikers James Keene and Eleazar Rodgers who earlier left the side, with Keene signing for SuperSport United while Rodgers moved to Free State Stars.
