Cape Town - CAPS
United left-back Ronald Pfumbidzai is currently in South Africa where he is
undergoing trials at Premiership leaders Kaizer Chiefs.
Read: Lengthy layoff
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.
