Tendayi Nyumasi has agreed a two year deal to join Mochudi Centre Chiefs. The player and his new club agreed terms and completed the transfer last week Thursday. Nyumasi joins Chiefs after a move to South Africa failed to materialize, trials at FC Cape Town and Royal Eagles FC could not yield a permanent contract for the Zimbabwean striker.
Chiefs have been tracking Nyumasi for a while, and they have finally completed his signing after almost seeing him join a South African club. The Kgatleng giants have decided to keep the announcement of the transfer under wraps because they have not concluded the deal with Ecco City Greens.
Contacted for comment, Chiefs management acknowledged their pursuit of Nyumasi and revealed that they wrote a letter to Ecco to notify them of their interest. Their letter is aimed at gaining permission to talk to Nyumasi, however, sources have stated that this is a formality as Chiefs have already concluded their agreement with the striker.
The insiders informed this publication that Nyumasi was spotted at Magosi’s training grounds on Wednesday and finalized the two year deal on Thursday. The player was previously represented by Comfort Ramatebele’s Glamour Sport International but they appear to have parted ways as the player represented himself during his negotiations with Chiefs.
“We have written a proposal to Ecco. We will only give further information if the deal is completed, we want to follow the correct procedure in our pursuit of Nyumasi,” said Chiefs’ Clifford Mogomotsi.
Ecco’s Secretary General, Mothokomedi Gaetshetse confirmed Chiefs’ interest, “They have shown interest in Nyumasi. We received their proposal on Friday, we are aware of reports that they have already agreed a deal but our position is clear, no agreement has been reached yet. We have not yet given them permission to negotiate a deal with him, we will probably reply them this week. We want to keep him but we are ready to allow him to leave because it is not wise to stand in the way of a player if he wants to leave,” explained Gaetshetse.
