Wits not interested in signing Teko Modise

Bidvest Wits CEO Jose Ferreira says the club are not in the race to sign former Sundowns midfielder Teko Modise.

The Brazilians announced this week that they have released the 34 year-old from his contract, leaving him free to negotiate a deal with another top flight side.

Ferreira admitted that Wits had been approached by a representative of Modise but said: “We get telephone calls from agents all the time.

“Have I been approached about Modise, yes, I have been approached by agents for 200 or 300 different players. Teko Modise is a fantastic player, but do we need a player like Teko Modise at Wits? I think our midfield is one of the strongest in the country at the moment, so would it make sense to sign Teko Modise? I think the answer is clearly not.”
