Tshakhuma Tsha Madzivhandila chief executive officer Sello Chokoe says the club have ambitions to compete for the Premier Soccer League title.

TTM announced the purchase of Bidvest Wits' PSL status on Saturday and will take their place in the South African top-flight next season, after relocating the club to Limpopo.

The club will finish their current season in the GladAfrica Championship while Wits will see out their Premiership campaign.

Speaking to Power FM, Chokoe said: "We are hoping Wits can finish in the top eight so we can play [in the] MTN8. We are not in the PSL to make up numbers.

"We want to be in the top eight consistently and fight to win the league. Even in NFD, we were in the playoffs last season, and we are close now."

Wits entered the enforced break as a result of the coronavirus in sixth place on the league standings.

Chokoe added that Gift Motupa will be leaving the club but Phathutshedzo Nange is staying.

"Nange is not going anywhere. He is a local boy who is known here. We will build a team around him. We wanted to keep him and Motupa, but the offer Motupa has is huge. But Nange is not going anywhere near will be keeping him.

"Motupa will not be at TTM next season. We are talking to a team and the transfer will be over soon. He indicated that he doesn't want to move to Limpopo and we respect that. We will allow him to go to a club of his choice."
