FC PLATINUM star Nelson Maziwisa could be off to South African Premiership this week as log leaders SuperSport United are keen to land the striker.

He has attended trials at Calvin Johnson’s side and now the club wants to conduct medicals before the player can sign a three-year deal.
Maziwisa was the 2012 Golden Boot winner with 18 goals during his loan stint at Shabanie Mine before being recalled by the platinum miners. But consistency has been a problem for him this season due to technical changes on the team’s bench.
Should Maziwisa leave, he will miss Zimbabwe’s second leg, final qualifying Chan match against Zambia set for the Levy Mwanawasa Stadium in Ndola this Saturday.
SuperSport are still to make a decision on another Zimbabwean at the club, Simba Sithole, who went for trials last week and missed the Warriors 0-0 draw against on Sunday.
Former Caps United and Dynamos striker Simba Sithole is also at the club, but has been battling with injury.
Mamelodi Sundowns and KV Oostende have finally agreed to a one-year loan deal for Zimbabwean striker Nyasha Mushekwi.

Sundowns spokesperson Kabelo Mosito told the club’s official website: “Mamelodi Sundowns would like to wish the player all the best abroad as he has served the club with dignity since joining in 2010 from Caps United.
“An agreement between the two clubs might have taken longer than expected, but all parties involved had to first be satisfied with the terms of the deal.
Therefore the time period for negotiations could have never been determined, but we are very pleased for the player that an agreement has finally been reached.”
On the field of play, former Warriors attacking midfielder Vusa Nyoni played 45 minutes for Mons as the Belgian Pro League side was beaten 2-0 by Zulte Waregem over the weekend.
Costa Nhamoinesu continued with his impressive start in the Czech top-flight after playing the entire match in a top-of-the-table clash between his new side Sparta Prague and leaders Viktoria Plzen.
The match ended in 0-0 draw and both teams are now on 13 points each after five matches with Nhamoinesu’s side second on an inferior goal difference. The former AmaZulu defender was, however, yellow carded in the 65th minute for rough play.
Quincy Antipas’ Brondby in the Danish top-flight are at the bottom of the log after a 5-2 thrashing at the hands of leaders Midtjylland. The Zimbabwe international played the entire match.
Warriors international Ovidy Karuru did not feature for OH Leuven in Belgium as they lost to early pacesetters Standard Liege, neither did Archford Gutu for Kalmar in Sweden as they were hammered 4-1 by Malmo.
In the English championship, Bradley Pritchard is serving a two-match suspension due to a red card and missed his side Charlton Athletic’s 2-2 draw against Barnsley.
