Jomo Cosmos, who were promoted into the top-flight league this year, announced the signing of the 2012 Zimbabwe Soccer Star of the Year from Bidvest Wits on their website.

The club did not, however, give details of the deal although it is likely that the 22-year-old was signed on a season-long loan.

“Ezenkosi have acquired the services of Zimbabwean attacking midfielder, Denver Mukamba. The former Dynamos player had returned to his club Bidvest Wits after a fine session at Tuks where he made 11 league starts in 18 appearances,”

Mukamba spent last season on loan at University of Pretoria, and reports last month had suggested that Tuks were determined to have him permanently, but were put off by Bidvest’s asking price.

The midfield star joined Bidvest in 2013 after a stellar season at Dynamos where he was voted the country’s best local player, but he could not replicate the same form, and after one season, he was shipped off to University of Pretoria.

It is at the Tswane side that he has shown some glimpses of his former self.

At Cosmos, Mukamba will join up with his fellow countryman Charlton Mashumba, who is back at the club after attending trials in Portugal.

Mashumba played a key role in Cosmos’ promotion to the Premiership scoring 19 goals leading to interest from South African and oversea clubs.

“Zimbabwean striker Charlton Mashumba was attending trials in Portugal. He is back in South Africa and training with the club.
Mashumba is here to stay and is currently training with the club,” it was reported on the club website.
