In the Sunday edition of the Sun, Nengomasha, who turns 32 on September 2, says he grew up supporting Dynamos.
“Dynamos is the team I grew up supporting and l intend finishing my career there,” he said.
The “General” played 261 games between 2002 and 2012 for Chiefs and was named the player of the year and players’ player of the year the following season after guiding Amakhosi to the league title.
He signed a two-year deal at Wits with the option of another year, but the club has decided not to exercise that option.
Dynamos have been a haven for most returning players who include, of late, Rodreck Mutuma (Bloemfontein Celtic), Tafadzwa Rusike (Ajax Cape Town), Simba Sithole (Mamelodi Sundowns and SuperSport United), Oscar Machapa (Moroka Swallows) and Takesure Chinyama (Legia Warsaw).
As the transfer window opens on July 1, former Caps United and Warriors right-back Gilbert Mapemba will also be seeking new pastures after being released by his struggling side Moroka Swallows.

While others are returning home, Highlanders’ Milton Ncube is heading to Ajax Cape Town, Peter Moyo (Highlanders) is joining Mpumalanga Black Aces while Dynamos goalkeeper George Chigova is off to SuperSport United in the South African Premiership.
Kuda Mahachi is headed for Mamelodi Sundowns and is also in line for trials at cash-rich French Ligue One side Monaco.
Once again, we say congratulations to Highlanders legend Madinda Ndlovu who was last week named the beMobile Premier League Coach of the Year in Botswana after winning his third league title in a row.
Ndlovu won two titles with Mochudi Centre Chiefs before he moved to Township Rollers last season, where he was unbeaten in 28 league matches in his march to glory.
It capped a fine year for Madinda as his sibling Peter also won the league title at Mamelodi Sundowns where he is manager, while the other Ndlovu, Brian, saw his Coventry United (not to be confused with Coventry City) being promoted to the third tier of British football.
Little known Zimbabwean striker Patrick Kaunda moved from Botswana’s FC Satmos, where he was the country’s top goal scorer, to Platinum Stars in Rustenburg.
