Stuart Baxter's side currently only have four foreign players registered: Ugandan utility player Ivan Bukenya, Zimbabwean midfielders Willard Katsande and Ovidy Karuru, and Zimbabwean forward Matthew Rusike.

In addition, AmaKhosi had previously had Kingston Nkhatha, yet another Zimbabwean, on their books this season before he departed for SuperSport United in the current transfer window.

According to the PSL rules though, which state that: "No club in the Premier Division will have more than five (5) registered foreign players during the course of any particular season, even if previously registered foreign players are de-registered during the course of the season," it would appear Chiefs would not be able to register any further foreigners this season.

Nevertheless, CAPS United's chief executive officer Joe Makuvire has confirmed that Pfumbidzai, the Zimbabwe national under-23 captain, is currently with Chiefs at their training base in Naturena.

"I can confirm that Ronald is indeed in South Africa and his trip is with the blessings of the club," Makuvire told The Herald.

"In fact, it was a club initiative and we facilitated the trials so we are fully aware of what is going on and we are on top of the situation," he added.
