Turkish league beckons for club-hunting Benjani


Top Turkish side, Bursaspor are chasing the signature of Warriors captain Benjani Mwaruwari who is looking for a new club after being released by his English Premiership outfit Manchester City.
According to reports, Bursaspor – the defending champions in the Turkey’s Turkcell Super Lig – are said to be holding talks with the dreadlocked Zimbabwean striker.
The club are keen to secure his services before the Turkish 2010/11 season which starts after the 2010 Fifa World Cup in August.
However, information from Turkey indicates that the two parties are yet to reach an agreement.
Again Mwaruwari would only consider moving to Turkey if he can’t secure a move to a club in the English premiership.
Mwaruwari – who is also in talks with Blackburn Rovers – struggled to find his goal scoring form last season.
The striker only managed a single goal for the whole season and even a loan move to Sunderland in February this year failed to change his fortunes.
If Mwaruwari opts to go to Turkey, he will follow the footsteps of Warriors caretaker coach Norman Mapeza who also played in that league for Galatasaray and Malatyaspor among other teams.
Former Warriors strikers Shingi Kawondera and Joseph Ngwenya at one point played in the same league.
