Gavin Hunt: Keet hasn't made a decision on his contract

Darren Keet's future at Bidvest Wits remains unclear after head coach Gavin Hunt told that the Bafana Bafana goalkeeper is yet to make a decision.

Keet's contract is set to expire at the end of June 2019 and reports have further suggested that he could be keen on a career back in Europe. 

Hunt, however, is already prepared on the possibility of losing the first-choice keeper and is already looking at Ajax Cape Town's Jody February as a potential replacement next season.

“Nothing has been resolved yet [with Keet] so we have to keep playing‚” Hunt told TimesLive.

“He will play the last match [against Golden Arrows on Saturday‚ as Ricardo Goss is suspended].

“With the Darren situation, we have to get something in as a cover. We will have a look [at February].

“It’s a big ask‚ a big jump for him [February] but we will see. There’s a lot of potentials and I’m not afraid to play young players.”

February, on the other hand, is still contracted to Ajax and this would require Wits to fork out a lump sum if there were to sign him on.

“I don’t know. Darren’s got ambitions‚ so I don’t really know. You know it’s up to him. He knows. “There was an offer made‚ I don’t know what the outcome was]‚ but there was an offer made. That was it‚” said Hunt without getting into details of the offer.

Bidvest Wits are currently on 51 points‚ five less than leaders Mamelodi Sundowns (56).

However there remains the chance of Wits being awarded two points‚ and Sundowns deducted one‚ in a Safa arbitration case regarding Downs having fielded an ineligible player‚ Wayne Arendse‚ against the Clever Boys in a 1-1 draw in October.
