AmaZulu face the very real prospect of losing winger Ovidy Karuru as he continues to attract interest from all quarters.
KickOff.com last week confirmed that clubs from Denmark and Sweden had made contact with the player and it now appears that PSL clubs are also interested in his services.
Currently on national team duty with Zimbabwe at the COSAFA Castle Cup, Karuru has impressed thus far by bagging five goals as the Warriors progressed to the next stage of the tournament.
Karuru, captaining the side out in the North West, scored twice as Zim defeated Mozambique 4-0 in their opening Group B match of the regional tournament at Moruleng Stadium on Monday.
He has followed that up with hat-trick on Friday as Sunday Chinzangba's side thrashed Seychelles 6-0 at the Royal Bafokeng Stadium to book a spot in the quarter-finals.
He's currently the top scorer in the cup with five goals as Zimbabwe seek to win the trophy they last won in 2009 under current coach Sunday Chidzambwa, who also won it in 2003.
The 28-year-old joined AmaZulu in January on a one-year and six month contract after he was left clubless for six months following his release from Kaizer Chiefs at the end of the 2015/16 season.
According to a source close to this website, Karuru, who sadly lost agent Edzai Kasinauyo, has managed to find an agent, and the new man in charge of his affairs is now inundated with interest from local clubs.
"There's huge interest in Ovidy at the moment," a source tells KickOff.com.
"Unfortunately I can't give clubs out at the moment but wow... it's getting hot outside. I have heard of five PSL clubs who are now wanting the player.
"He has managed to find an agent abroad who was his long term friend and he is discussion with two other clubs - I can assure you it'll be very tough for AmaZulu to keep him this coming season."
Karuru, who previously played abroad before coming to join Chiefs in 2015, scored twice in 13 league appearances during the second half of Usuthu's campaign as Joey Antipas' side finished fifth in the National First Division.
