Caps United chief executive Joe Makuvire confirmed Pfumbidzai would undergo trials for two weeks with the Danish club.
Makuvire said Pfumbidzai was now waiting for a visa.
“He has been invited for trials in Denmark. He is supposed to be leaving on March 2. He will be there for two weeks. Everything else is in place, he is just waiting for a visa,” said Makuvire.
Hobro are in seventh position on the Danish league table with 21 points from 17 games.
The Caps United full-back also had trials with South African Premiership giants Kaizer Chiefs two weeks ago. He is reported to have made the grade with reports suggesting he could be considered for the next transfer window.
The player’s manager Ralph Nkomo said: “Ronald did very well during his trails at Kaizer Chiefs. They were very impressed, but unfortunately they were not looking for a left-back for now. We are still discussing a possible contract in future since the transfer window in South Africa has already closed. But there is another club which wants to look at the player. I am not in a position to disclose the club at this stage, as I would need to engage the Caps United chairman first. Caps have the final say, but what is important is the player’s interests,” said Nkomo.
Pfumbidzai had also been linked with a club in Sweden.
However, he now has the opportunity to break into the Danish top-flight league. Should he make the grade at Hobro, he will link up with fellow Zimbabwean forward Quincy Antipas who turns out for the same team.
Antipas, who has played in the Danish league for the past year, is regarded as one of their best signings.
He is a key member of the team. A former Motor Action and Caps United player, Antipas has also played in Morocco and Denmark turning out for several clubs including Moghreb Tétouan, MAS Fez, Blokhus, HB Køge and SønderjyskE. He signed for Brøndby on September 3 2012 before moving to Hobro in July 2014.
Another Zimbabwean, former Harare City forward Silas Songani, also plays his club football in Denmark turning out for SønderjyskE.
He has been there since January 2014.
