The former Mamelodi Sundowns midfielder had been linked with a return to Chloorkop, but the Glamour Boys seem to have won the race for ‘Sheppy’, who is said to have penned a three-year deal.

Hunt and Sheppard worked together at Bidvest Wits for three years before the club’s PSL status was put up for sale.

The 41-year-old legendary player will now form part of Hunt’s bench after the four-time league-winning coach was appointed as Ernst Middendorp’s successor last week.

Amakhosi legend Arthur Zwane, who is in charge of the Glamour Boys’ reserve side, is also said to be the next former Bafana player who will assist Hunt ahead of the 2020/21 campaign.
