DZVUKAMANJA’S UNCERTAIN FUTURE
6 July 2018
NGEZI Platinum are not certain they will hold on to talisman Terrence Dzvukamanja for the rest of the season.
Their top scorer has attracted the attention of Bidvest Wits and chances are he could be snatched this transfer window or end of year.
Club chairman Jeremiah Gasiteni told H-Metro that they are ready for any eventuality.
“There is nothing certain on him, but for now we are confident of keeping most of our players,” he said.
In the absence of Dzvukamanja, Ngezi Platinum have been ordinary and experienced their worst run so far.
The midfielder, who can also play as a second striker, was part of the Warriors squad that won the COSAFA Cup in South Africa.
“There is nothing much we can say about the player at the moment. There is nothing concrete.”
H-Metro however understands that behind the scenes, efforts are being made to try and sign the player for Wits who are re-building for the coming season.
The club have been keeping tabs on the player at club level and national team level.
A source close to the club indicates that chances are high that a deal could be sealed this July.
“They are still open for a possible deal, but obviously during this period there are a lot of things that they have to take into consideration. They have to weigh all the options and it also depends on what Ngezi will also be demanding.
“But the fact that this is a player that can actually score at least seven to eight goals in the first half and have a chance to finish with 15 to 16 goals playing from deep, means he is a top player.
“And if Wits do not come up with a deal, there is still bound to be other clubs seeking to take him on board,” said the source.
Ngezi Platinum face Herentals at National Sports Stadium on Saturday, a game coach Tonderai Ndiraya must find a formula to turn around the corner.
They had recorded three consecutive defeats before the mid-season break – against Bulawayo Chiefs, FC Platinum and Black Rhinos.
