Former Pirates goalkeeper Moeneeb Josephs has returned to Bidvest Wits on a three-year contract according to his agent Michael Hughes

Former Orlando Pirates shot-stopper Moeneeb Josephs has finally penned a three-year deal with neighbours Bidvest Wits.

Josephs’ agent Michael Hughes confirmed to Goal that the former Bafana keeper will remain in Gauteng despite media reports linking him with a move back to Cape Town.

“Josephs has definitely signed a three-year contract with Bidvest Wits with an option to renew for two seasons,” Hughes told Goal.

Goal exclusively revealed towards the end of last season that Josephs has signed a pre-contract with the Clever Boys, but neither he nor his agent could confirm the news.

The 33-year-old Josephs found it hard to break into the Pirates’ starting line-up following their disastrous performance against Bloem Celtic in the Telkom Knockout Cup last season.

Josephs’ contract with Pirates expired on June 30, and it became evident in the last six months of his contract that Bucs were not intending to keep him at the club.

He is expected to play a major role in the team that experienced goalkeeping problems this past season, with four of their regular keepers all injured.
