Bidvest Wits coach Gavin Hunt believes they are not done with their transfer business and that more signings are in the offing before the close of the transfer window.

"We can't just keep going the way we have been. We have freshened the place up a little bit, and I am sure there will be a lot more to be done. It's only the first week of January," Hunt told IOL.

The Students have so far brought in Edwin Gyimah, Lehlohonolo Majoro, Denis Weidlich and recalled Sifiso Myeni from his loan spell at SuperSport United.

"We have brought in another striker, a wide player we haven't had because of injuries to (Elias) Pelembe and Kobamelo Kodisang. And defenders if you can get those, then that is another situation," he continued.

"I mean we haven't scored goals, then we were caught with our pants down at the start of the season because most of our defenders were injured and that is why we conceded so many at times," Hunt said.

The championship-winning coach, who led the club to their maiden title last season, is optimistic his new charges will do well, especially Majoro who joined from Cape Town City.

"I hope they do well, that's what you hope for when you bring players in. Majoro will certainly give us a lot more effort, closing from the front and running in good lines. He will get himself more into positions by working hard because that is in his DNA. Edwin is quite versatile," he explained.

"He arrived in SA (in 2011) as a midfield player and I made him a centreback-playing him there in one cup final and in the middle in another cup final. He is a good driving force. We have lacked a little bit of that," Hunt concluded.
