Moyo, Zimbabwe’s first football export to Zambia, yesterday confirmed to NewsDay that he is engaged in talks with the club.
“It’s true that I am back in Zambia seeking a move to current champions Zanaco, but no deal has been concluded so far,” he said.
Moyo, who turns 32 in May, spent the last half of the 2016 season with Tsholotsho and helped the Lizwe Sweswe-coached side survive relegation.
Prior to joining Tsholotsho, Moyo had spent 2015 and the first half of 2016 in limbo after failing to agree terms with Bulawayo giants Highlanders upon his return from Zambia.
His stock rose after resuscitating his career at Tsholotsho, leading to a number of local teams expressing an interest in his services.
Some of the teams that the dreadlocked player was linked with include Highlanders, ZPC Kariba, Bulawayo City and Caps United.
In his first Zambian stint, Moyo joined Zesco in 2010 after being scouted by former Zambian player, Mwenga Chipepo, while playing social soccer in South Africa.
He went on to win the league title three times, playing as a left-back for the club.
Last season he starred for Tsholotsho in a central midfield position.
