Cape Town - Wits CEO Jose Ferreira has dismissed the notion that the Premiership runners-up are preparing to offer veteran striker Katlego Mashego a contract.
The 34-year-old has been training with the Clever Boys for the past two weeks, leading to suggestions of an impending contract offer for the former Mamelodi Sundowns player.
Mashego parted ways with title-winning Sundowns at the end of the 2015/16 campaign, meaning he is currently a free agent.
However, he will not be offered a contract by the Clever Boys, whose CEO revealed the player had merely been training with the club in a bid to improve his fitness.
"Mashego has been training with us but only because he is looking to keep fit. We are not looking to sign him," Ferreira told KickOff.
Wits have already bolstered the squad with Eleazar Rodgers, Cuthbert Malajila and Gabadinho Mhango.
