January Transfer rumours for Zim players

[Posted 05 Dec 2011]

Mutuma and Malajila could leave Dynamos before January next year

As has become the norm following the end of the 2011 Castle Lager Soccer season in Zimbabwe, rumours abound about player movements from a league rich in talent, but has suffered chronic funding problems over the past decade.

Archieford Gutu has already tied up a deal to move to Kalmar IF in Sweden from Dynamos after impressing during the mid-year trials in the European country.

A look at the squad of the former Swedish champions reveals that Gutu is already a Kalmar player and his age is curiously given as 18, giving him many years of football action ahead. The player who helped Dynamos to a league and couple double this past season has been on the books of Ajax Cape Town before.

Aces Academy product Abbas Amidu of Castle Lager PSL side Black Mambas, is the latest player to be linked with a move to South Africa's Ajax Cape Town, after reportedly impressing the Ikamva-based out-fit with his talent during a 10-day trial period recently.

Amidu's agent Edzai Kasinauyo of Tamba Sport International has stated that the only outstanding issues in Amidu's imminent departure from Mambas relate to personal terms and agreement on transfer fees between Ajax on one hand, and Aces/Mambas on the other hand.

 “The first part has been done, Ajax has assessed him and they are happy with him,” Kasinauyo told a Zimbabwean newspaper over the weekend.

“We are now planning the way forward and I am preparing to go there (to South Africa's city of Cape Town) next week to sit down and come up with an agreement. Age is still on his side and that’s something Ajax were impressed with.

"There (are) a lot of parties involved in terms of transfer so those are some of the logistics we are looking at to complete the move.”

Amidu has been one of the outstanding players in the just ended Castle Lager league in Zimbabwe, and was the driving force behind Mambas escaping relegation this past season.

Meanwhile, Castle Lager PSL Golden Boot winner Rodrick Mutuma of Dynamos left for trials with struggling ABSA premiership side Engen Santos of Cape Town on Friday.

Santos have been struggling to score goals this season and Mutuma could provide answers to their blunt strike-force which has failed to put away great chances created by the midfield.

Bubbling with confidence following his scoring form at Dynamos, Mutuma is expected to pass the test in Cape Town, failing which he will have another chance to try his luck with Golden Arrows in Durban.

Mutuma is not only good at scoring goals, he creates opportunities for others as well. The only side of his soccer career he should work on is his temper, as he has found himself in the referees black book more often that is necessary.

Another player who will be on a club-hunting mission down South, is Allan Gahadzikwa, probably the most consistent player in the Castle Lager PSL for the past two years.

Like Mutuma, the Motor Action utility man will be undergoing trials at modest ABSA PSL sides Santos in Cape Town, before moving to Golden Arrows in Durban. 

The two clubs have never been very popular destinations for Zimbabwean players. Santos have had at least a good share of some players from across Limpopo.

Midfielder John Mbidzo, defender Zvenyika Makonese and attacking midfielder Eddie Mashiri are the best known players to have played for Santos. Golden Arrows are not known for their affinity with Zimbabwean players, unlike Johannesburg giants Kaizer Chiefs who currently have five on their books.

On the local front, there is rumour that rich local club FC Platinum, are set to beef up their CAF Champions League side with local acquisitions. Names such as CAPS United's Tapiwa Khumbuyani, Gunners's quartet of gifted attacker Cliff Sekete, captain Qadr Amini, Ali Sadiki and Ishmael Lawe are understood to be the platinum miners' targets.

Sadiki and Lawe played for FC Platinum in a drawn friendly match against CAPS last week, and were joined on trial by three players from relegated but competitive Masvingo United; goalkeeper Francis Tizayi , Welcome Ndiweni and Hardlife Mavundi.

So insatiable is the Zvishavane-based outfit's hunger for success in the Champions League and league next season that they are also rumoured to be after the Dynamos trio of goalkeeper Washington Arubi, talented midfielder Denver Mukamba and experienced striker Cuthbert Malajila.
