Chinyama off to Pirates


Takesure Chinyama reportedly left for South Africa yesterday to link up with his new teammates at Orlando Pirates for pre-season training although he will have to wait for the conclusion of his transfer deal.

Chinyama, who played his last match for Dynamos and scored on Sunday in the 1-1 draw against Highlanders at Barbourfields — his ninth league goal — did not attend the team’s training session yesterday. His club Dynamos and Pirates are still to agree on the transfer fee for the player.

Dynamos are demanding a transfer fee of between $120 000 and $150 000, while Pirates want it to be revised downwards.

Dynamos are reportedly willing to reduce the figure to slightly below $100 000 and are still waiting for Orlando Pirates representative Stanley “Screamer” Tshabalala to come over to Harare to negotiate and put pen to paper.

Dynamos secretary Ray Kazembe said they were still waiting for Orlando Pirates to come over to finalise the deal which he, however, said was “as good as done”.

He said: “The deal is as good as done, but nothing has been signed yet. We are still to finalise a few things.

This deal is being done in good faith and we should expect the Orlando Pirates representative here any time this week.”
Chinyama has been offered R100 000 per month and a three-year contract with an option of a further two years., an international player ratings company, believe Chinyama is worth €450 000.

The former Legia Warsaw hitman is managed by ABP Sport Management UG and according to their profile; he is already a Pirates player with a contract running up to 2015.

The same company looks after the interests of another former Dynamos striker Edward Sadomba, who plays for Al Hilal in Sudan and is valued at 300 000 euros.

Meanwhile, Dynamos have launched a fresh bid to land Monomotapa striker Kuda Musharu as a possible replacement for Chinyama.

The former Motor Action forward is a long-time target for DeMbare gaffer Kalisto Pasuwa. Pasuwa had indicated to his team management at the beginning of the term that he wanted to beef up his attack with the addition of Musharu.

Chairman Keni Mubaiwa confirmed that they were interested in Musharu.

“We are still talking to Monomotapa. There is nothing concrete at the moment,” said Mubaiwa.
Dynamos have been targeting Shabanie Mine’s Nelson Maziwisa- who is the current PSL leading goal scorer with a jaw breaking 13 league goals in 15 matches, but his club FC Platinum placed a “Not for Sale” sign on him.
