Bidvest Wits have signaled their intentions of defending their league title after the Premier Soccer League champions strengthened their squad with the acquisition of exciting teenager Kobamelo Kodisang‚ the club announced announced on Thursday.

The 17-year-old‚ who joins the Clever Boys as a free agent‚ struggled for game time at Platinum Stars after he played 14 matches in all competitions last season.
