Young England-based Zimbabwean Under 20 player Trevor Mutero has claiamed that ABSA Premiership side Bidvest Wits are keen to sign him ahead of next season.
Mutero, who spent two weeks being assessed by the Johannesburg-based club, has told the government controlled Herald of Zimbabwe that he impressed Wits coach Roger De Sa during the trial stint and is set to be offered a contract for the 2012/2013 season.
"My trials here at Wits have finished and they went really well. I want thank God for his presence and comfort at all times.
"The team wants to sign me but because of the foreign players thing, I will sign with them for the start of next season and that's definite.
"On Monday next week, they (Wits) are having a meeting to discuss about my budget and my contract and everything so I'm flying back to Zimbabwe on Saturday (today) and will be going back to England to keep fit with a Premiership team that I've been training with since I left Reading FC," Mutero told the Herald a day ago.
Mutero is a talented 18-year old player whomade headlines last year when he expressed his desire to play for rival Jo-burg club Kaizer Chiefs to the point of issuing a come-get-me plea to the Soweto giants.
It looks like its Wits who have headed his plea to play club football in South Africa.
