Cape Town - Absa Premiership sides Bidvest Wits and SuperSport United on Tuesday confirmed an agreement to the early release of winger Fagrie Lakay, with Mxolisi Macuphu heading in the other direction to Matsatsantsa on loan.

Lakay had signed a pre-contract agreement but will now join the Clever Boys with immediate effect.

The 21-year old leaves Matsatsantsa with three trophies under his belt and a CAF Confederations Cup runners-up medal in his three-and-a-half-year spell at the club.

Macuphu will be on loan to SuperSport United until the end of the season.

The 29-year old was recently called up to the national team for the crucial AFCON qualifier clash against Libiya after a very impressive start of the 2018/19 season and will look to recapture that form during his stay at Matsatsantsa.
