With John Zhuwawu on the verge of joining Ajax Cape Town of South Africa, it has emerged that versatile defensive linkman Devon Chafa is on the Ngezi Platinum radar and is likely to be on his way out.
After bagging the goldent boot award with 17 goals under his belt, Dominic Chungwa is also reported to be on a wanted list in the ABSA Premiership.
Moses Muchenje, Valentine Musarurwa and Joel Ngodzo are some of the Makepekepe regulars who have contracts expiring on December 31.
However, CAPS United chief executive Cuthbert Chitima yesterday insisted the club has already agreed in principle with most of their players to renew their contracts.
“We have already spoken with the majority of players whose contracts are running out at the end of the season,” said Chitima.
“We are actually expecting to finalise everything by Friday next week. We have already agreed in principle with most of these players and what is left is for them to sign. We are not worried at all, everything is under control.”
The Green Machine were left a rather weakened side following the departure of such players like Abbas Amidu, Ronald Chitiyo and Ronald Pfumbidzayi following their impressive performances in the champions league.
United’s coach Lloyd Chitembwe is also heavily linked witrh a move to ZPC Kariba
