SuperSport United, Bloemfontein Celtic and Chippa United want

Monomotapa FC midfielder Ronald Chitiyo could soon be joining the PSL as three clubs have shown interest in the talented player.
Chitiyo, named Zimbabwe’s third best player in the 2012 Castle Premiership season and nicknamed Rooney, has been linked to SuperSport United, Bloemfontein Celtic and Chippa United.
Monomotapa chairman Joseph Mukoki says their policy is not to stand in the way of players once concrete offers have been received.
“We will not stand in his way if we are satisfied with the offer on the table if he passes trials. We are just waiting for communication before he is released for trials as three teams in South Africa want to have a look at him,” Mukoki says.
Monomotapa finished fourth in the 2012 season and qualified for the CAF Confederation Cup, but could not participate due to lack of funding. The club has already released Artwell Mukandi and Russel Madamombe to Champions League participants Dynamos.
The trials are being facilitated by former Warriors, Ajax Cape Town and Moroka Swallows winger Edzai Kasinauyo through his Tamba Sports Management company.
Meanwhile, Zimbabwe champions Dynamos say there is no official letter of invitation from South African side Bloemfontein Celtic for striker Rodreck Mutuma to attend trials next week.
The trial period is due to start on Monday but Mutuma, who returned to pre-season training on Tuesday, says he is in the dark about the trial.
Dynamos acting secretary-general Webster Chikengezha says they have not received anything from Celtic.
“It is highly unlikely the player will go to South Africa as we have not received anything written from Celtic.”
