FC Platinum and Young Warriors defender Lincoln Zvasiya this week quietly left the country for a trial stint with glamour South African side Kaizer Chiefs.
A source close to the towering defender confirmed Zvasiya was in South Africa.
He said: “Kaizer Chiefs want to make it a secret, so they asked Lincoln to come for trials without making noise about it. I think he will make the grade because of his height and technical awareness.”
Zvasiya was part of the Under-23 team which missed qualification for the 2011 All-Africa Games by a whisker after falling at the last hurdle against South Africa. The Young Warriors lost
2-1 on aggregate in the final qualifier.
Among some of his peers in the Young Warriors were Dynamos’ talisman Archford Gutu, Abbas Amidu, Mathew Rusike, Ariel Sibanda and Simba Sithole, who has since joined Mamelodi Sundowns.
If Zvasiya makes the grade at Chiefs, he will hook up with compatriots Tinashe Nengomasha, Thomas Sweswe and Zhaimu Jambo.
Meanwhile, former Chiefs striker Knowledge Musona will earn $1,2 million per year at his new club TSG Hoffeinhem, South African press reports said yesterday.
The figure translates into approximately $100 000 per month for the 21-year-old who recently signed a five-year deal with the Bundesliga outfit.
