Top Defender Holding On For End Of Season Move?

After parting ways with Cape Town City this week, Mozambican international defender Edmilson Dove could only have a new club in the DStv Premiership at the end of the current season, the Siya crew has been informed.

As reported by the Siya crew, Dove requested his clearance before the close of the transfer window on Monday.

According to the Cape side’s head coach Eric Tinkler, the defender expressed interest in going to a club where he would have regular game-time after struggling to achieve that at the Citizens this season due to strong competition he was facing from Bafana Bafana international Terrence Mashego.

The 27-year-old left-back had made just seven league appearances for the Mother City side and his appearance against SuperSport United in December was his 100th since joining the club in 2017.

AmaZulu president Sandile Zungu recently hinted about the club’s search for a quality left-back, and now sources have confirmed that Dove’s name has been bandied about at the KwaZulu-Natal giants, with a view of linking him up with his former coach Benni McCarthy, as with some of the other former Citizens who have done so in recent times.

However, a stumbling block for Usuthu which is preventing the team from landing their target immediately is that the club has exhausted its foreign quota with Augustine Mulenga, Matarr Ceesay, Andre de Jong, Jean-Noël Amonome and the newly-signed Abraham Majok filling the available slots.

Indications are that Usuthu are likely to rekindle their interest at the end of the season as the club will be making important decisions about the squad and look set to reshuffle their foreign quota.

In the meantime, Dove is set to spend some time back home in Mozambique while assessing his options for the remainder of the season.
