A Zimbabwean striker is linked with Mamelodi Sundowns, with the Chloorkop outfit believed to have identified a need to reinforce their attacking line during the current transfer window.
According to reports in Zimbabwe, the striker is 19-year-old Delic Murimba from Triangle United FC, who are campaigning in Zimbabwe’s Premier League.
Zimbabwean publication, The Herald, has quoted Downs’ Belinda Ndlovu as confirming the player’s invitation at the club for a trial.
“We confirm that the above mentioned professional soccer player (Delic Murimba) has been invited by us (Mamelodi Sundowns Football Club) to attend trials at our club, for a period of approximately 10 days with immediate effect to travel to South Africa on the 14th of January 2019,” The Herald has attributed the comments to Ndlovu.
“Sundowns will be responsible for his flights, accommodation, transport and meals for the duration of his stay in South Africa. Further, we confirm that Sundowns FC will take full responsibility of him whilst he is in South Africa and ensure his return to his home country. Should you have any queries, do not hesitate to contact us,” Ndlovu’s letter further stated, according to the Zimbabwean publication.
Murimba attracted interest from clubs, following his impressive performances during COSAFA Under-20 Championships in Zambia in December last year.
The young forward scored five goals as he finished the tournament as joint top goal-scorer with South Africa’s Lyle Foster, who has since secured a move to French giants AS Monaco from Orlando Pirates.
