Thindwa loaned to Wanderers
Caps United flop Ishmael Thindwa has joined Mighty Be Forward Wanderers on a six-month loan deal, The Daily Times can reveal.
In an interview on Thursday, Caps Chief Executive Officer, Joe Makuvire, confirmed the development from Harare. Makuvire said Thindwa has been given the green light to play for Wanderers until December this year.
“We have good relationship with Wanderers and we have offered them for free until December,” said Makuvire in a telephone interview.
“Thindwa has been released because he told us that he wants to be close to his family in Malawi,” he added.
However, Makuvire could not disclose the deal would be made permanent after the expiry of the loan period.
In a separate interview, Wanderers general secretary, Mike Butao, could neither deny nor confirm the deal.
“At the moment I don’t have information on the issue but call me next week,” said Butao.
However, Nomads face a chal lenge to feature Thindwa in the TNM Super League because the transfer window was closed.
But unconfirmed reports indicate that Wanderers started negotiating the deal before the start of the season.
Thindwa is also considered as a natural goal poacher despite struggling in Zimbabwe.
At Wanderers, Thindwa would be competing for first team football with forwards such as Mohammed Sulumba, Cameroonian Lionel Asu and Jimmy Zakazaka.
However, among the three, only Sulumba has proved to be Nomads reliable goal scorer while Asu is yet to convince. Zakazaka looks tired and not the same weapon of mass destruction.
FC The former Epac FC forward endured a difficult life in Zimbabwe just scoring two league goals in the Castle Lager Premiership in two seasons.
At Caps, Thindwa was a part player just playing 60 minutes in eight games this season.
Before joining Caps , Thindwa finished as the top goal scorer twice in three seasons.
