Top Zim star heading to Wits

Zimbabwe’s 2012 Footballer of the Year Denver Mukamba left for South Africa on Sunday where he is scheduled to undergo medicals at Absa Premiership side Bidvest Wits.
His manager Gibson Mahachi confirmed the departure of the Dynamos attacking midfielder.
“He has just left for South Africa. I will be following in two day’s time. The club will advise when the medicals will take place; either on Monday or Tuesday. But I am hopeful he will make it this time.”
Mukamba had trials in the last transfer window under then coach Antonio Habas Lopez, but could not make the grade although the club had maintained interest in him. Lopez was fired last Friday and has been replaced by Clive Barker.
The club sent air tickets on Friday for the player to make the trip – a sign that changes in the technical department will not affect his chances.
“I don’t think there will be any problems with the new coach,” Mahachi says.
Wits are already home to Zimbabwe internationals Thomas Sweswe and Tinashe Nengomasha.
The Dynamos midfielder could be followed to South Africa by striker Rodreck Mutuma, who has been invited by Bloemfontein Celtic for a trial period starting January 14.
