Since the arrival of Gavin Hunt at the beginning of the season, Sweswe has not enjoyed much game time at Wits, where he was injured for the better part of the just-ended season.

Three months ago, his hopes of finding a new home at Mpumalanga Black Aces in mid-season did not materialise, after the hard-tackling central defender failed a fitness test.

Club sources said Sweswe, who had previously vowed to end his playing career at The Clever Boys, where he signed a two-year contract six months ago, would be released by the Nedbank Cup finalists before the start of next season.

“He is one of the players leaving Wits. He will not be retained for next season,” said the club source recently. “He has been out for a long time and I believe that, if he wants to continue playing, it would be good for him to get another club.”

The former Highlanders and Dynamos defender, who underwent knee surgery in October, spent six months on the sidelines due to the injury. Hejoined the Johannesburg-based side from cross-town rivals Kaizer Chiefs, alongside countryman and former Chiefs teammate, Tinashe Nengomasha.
