NGEZI Platinum could have lost three players if Bidvest Wits had enough foreign slots to take all the players they assessed.
The ABSA Premiership side, who have since signed Terrence Dzvukamanja, was also impressed by Michael Charamba and James Nguluve, H-Metro can reveal.
Chances are that the other two could still make it in the next transfer window.
“They all impressed but in the end they settled for Terrence. They had one slot to fill in.
“All the three players showed their level is up there and we wait to see what happens in the future,” the agent that represented the players, Gibson Mahachi, said.
Ngezi Platinum, who are still in the race for the league title, could not stand in the way of their players.
An insider said the management always try put the interest of the players first if there are bigger opportunities for them.
The loss of three players could have significantly affected their campaign at a time when they are four points behind FC Platinum.
Coach Ndiraya however made it a point this week that whenever another player leaves, he expects the others to rise to the occasion and be counted.
Charamba has been one of the most impressive players at Ngezi with his incredible speed while Nguluve’s contribution has also come with devastating effects.
On Sunday Ngezi come face-to-face with Dynamos in a game that could make or break their campaign.
Tonderai Ndiraya’s charges have already won the reverse fixture and they will be seeking to make it a double.
They will be hoping that CAPS United do them a favour at Mandava where Lloyd Chitembwe will seek to stop FC Platinum’s march.
In the past CAPS United have enjoyed great records against FC Platinum.
