YOUNG Highlanders attacking midfielder Knox Mutizwa will on Tuesday leave the country for a two-week trial stint at South Africaa��s Absa Premier League side Pretoria University, B-Metro Sport has learnt.
Pretoria University who are better known as AmaTuks recently signed Dynamos and senior national team captain Partson Jaure. The club is also home to Warriors goalkeeper Washington Arubi and Denver Mukamba, who were loaned to the club by Bidvest Wits.
a�?I have been running around to make sure I go to South Africa for trials on Tuesday. I have already received a letter from Pretoria University inviting me for trials,a�? said Mutizwa who has been doing well for Bosso of late.
Mutizwa is a former Young Warriors player together with Mamelodi Sundownsa�� Kudakwashe Mahachi and striker Ozias Zibande, who possess great speed and skill.
He will be the second Bosso player to leave for trials in as many weeks after Khumbulani Banda who made the grade at Maritzburg United.
The stocky Banda signed for Maritzburg United on Tuesday.
Banda had been trying out his luck with Steve Komphelaa��s team for the past few weeks and the club announced the move on their official website.
a�?The Team of Choice is determined to strengthen its defence for the coming season. The club has signed 23-year-old Zimbabwean left back, Khumbulani Banda for two seasons from Highlanders in Zimbabwe,a�? said the club.
a�?The young defender has featured four times already for the Zimbabwean national team, and is considered to be a very skilful defender.a�?
Banda became the latest Highlanders player to join the Super Diski bandwagon after the gifted trio of Milton Ncube, Mahachi and Peter a�?Rioa�? Moyo.
Ncube joined Ajax Cape Town while Mahachi is now on the books of defending champions Sundowns. Moyo signed for Mpumalanga Black Aces. Other local players to move in recent weeks were Dynamos goalkeeper George Chigova who joined Supersport and Hwange defender Eric Chipeta who joined Chipa United.
The Bosso trio caught the eye of the Super Diski clubs during their tour of duty with the Ian a�?Dibangoa�? Gorowa coached Warriors at the African Nations Championship held in South Africa in January.
