Dynamos sweat over prending transfers



The double league and cup champions Dynamos are in dilemma as they battle to beat the Thursday deadline for the late registration of players for the CAF Champions League.

The league champions have already lost star midfielder Denver Mukamba to Bidvest Wits in South Africa, and look set to lose strikers Simba Sithole and Rodrick Mutuma to Supersport United and Bloemfontein Celtic respectively.

The team is battling to find replacements before the deadline – the biggest challenge they are facing is that they are still to agree with both Supersport and Celtic on the transfer fee for Sithole and Mutuma.

Dynamos are reportedly demanding $120 000 for Mutuma, but the two parties are still to agree on the transfer fee. The champions have also opened negotiations for the transfer of Sithole, but are also still to agree on a figure.

Both Supersport United and Celtic also have to sign the players before the close of the transfer window of 31 January.

However, it appears it is Dynamos who are under pressure as they need to ensure the transfer of the two players is completed on time to allow them to run around and find replacements before the Caf deadline for the final late registration of players.

Dynamos chairman Kenny Mubaiwa told Supersport.com that they were still waiting for communication from the South African clubs and admitted they were in a bit of a fix.

“We are facing a big challenge. We are still waiting for communication from South Africa as we negotiate for the transfer of the players. Time is running out because we need to find replacements so that we register before the deadline on Thursday (tomorrow). But if we can’t get replacements, we will be forced to do with what we have.

“We had already registered the two players and they are part of the squad list that we sent to CAF so if we don’t have them, we will have a depleted squad. This is a big tournament and we needed to have a strong squad but there is nothing we can do if things don’t work out the way we expect them,” Mubaiwa said.
