Trade exchange deal! Lakay to Wits - Macuphu to SSU

Bidvest Wits and SuperSport United have completed a trade exchange deal which sees Fagrie Lakay sign for the Clever Boys, while Mxolisi Macuphu has moved to SuperSport United.

Lakay had signed a pre-contract with Wits to join the club in July however the move has been brought forward to take place now in January.

Meanwhile, out of favour forward Macuphu has made the switch to SuperSport.

The 29-year-old scored just two goals in 14 appearances for Wits but has played just 45 minutes since the end of last November.

Lakay has also struggled to establish himself for SSU since returning from his loan spell with Ajax Cape Town in 2017/18.

The trade exchange seems to make sense for both the players and the clubs as it affords them more chance for playing time as well as options in attack respectively.

Lakay could make his debut against relegation-threatened Maritzburg United on Friday night, while Macuphu may make his bow for United on 10 February against Golden Arrows.
