MIDFIELDER Devon Chafa has agreed to re-join CAPS United and was yesterday expected to put pen to paper.
Chafa had attracted the interest of Dynamos and ambitious Zambian side Buildcon.
Chances however are that the Zambian side could still come and bid for the player before the season starts.
“We have successfully negotiated with Devon Chafa to sign a new contract and if all goes well, he will sign today (yesterday). So will are positive on that one,” said chief executive Cuthbert Chitima.
The developments mean the 2016 champions are almost close to assembling a full squad for the 2018 season.
They will now be expected to intensify moves to sign FC Platinum striker Ishmael Wadi who is not in the plans of the Zvishavane-based side.
Wadi is believed to be interested in moving to CAPS United on a loan move while Bulawayo City are trying to sign him permanently.
“It is not an easy process because he is an FC Platinum player. We will need to engage them first and then we see what happens.”
Chitima also confirmed that they were closing in on former How Mine right back Praise Tonha who has been training with them this week.
“That one is almost a done deal. We understand that he is a free agent. So we are signing him,” he said.
Another player training with CAPS United, Blessing Chimwamuchere, is however not certain to join CAPS.
“There is no recommendation from the coaches as yet so we have not done anything about that. But it is possible he is still training with the team,” said Chitima.
