Cape Town - Bidvest Wits have strengthened their striking department by snapping up forward Simon Murray from Scottish Premiership side Hibernian.

The club announced on its official Twitter account that it had signed the 26-year-old Murray on a permanent deal.

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

Wits have so far released at least 10 players after finishing last season in a disastrous 13th position in the league standings.

The Students have already recruited goalkeeper Brighton Mhlongo from Orlando Pirates, as well as midfielders Bantu Mzwakali and Mxolisi Machupu from Chippa United.
