As reported by Phakaaathi earlier, Ochaya underwent a trial at the Students to convince the club to sign him.
Club CEO David Tamale confirmed to the Daily Monitor that they received a letter from Wits over the weekend confirming that Ochaya had successfully passed the one-week trials.
“We are now in final negotiations with them over the final transfer fee, but we are not desperate to sell because we have many other offers from Europe. As management, we are still settling for the right price, but we believe he is worth $300 000 (just over R4 million),” he said.
KCCA chairperson Julius Kabugo added the club was still deliberating on the right price to sell Ochaya.
“We have to consider a lot of issues before we put pen to paper. Attributes like the player’s age, playing position and the possibility of being sold to another big club by Wits will have to count.”
