VETERAN striker Takesure Chinyama could face Dynamos at Mandava tomorrow after he received his reverse clearance.

Chinyama, who recently agreed a short-term deal with the Zvishavane-based side, last played for Dynamos in the domestic league.

He returned to Poland where he was turning out for third division side LZS Piotrówka.

The big striker, who turns 35 in September, has a chance to prove his critics wrong and turn on the style in the 2017 second half of the season.

"He received his clearance last Wednesday, which means he is available for selection. He is already registered with PSL and it is upto the technical team whether they want him against Dynamos or not. I understand when he arrived they were working on his fitness," club spokesperson Chido Chizondo told H-Metro.

His return to the country when he joined DeMbare had a huge impact on the domestic league as he inspired the former champions to another league title.

DeMbare tried in vain to sign the player again, with club president Kenny Mubaiwa admitting recently that they would have wanted him back in blue.

They were however, beaten to his signature by Norman Mapeza's charges.

The clash brings together a club that discovered form in the last eight matches and another trying to find consistence and shown real intent with signings made in the past weeks.

FC Platinum have since agreed personal terms with Ali Sadiki who is set to be direct replacement for Talent Chawapiwa.

Sadiki, who was in the books of DRC giants TP Mazembe, is already in the country.

The Zvishavane-based side managed to sign their former player ahead of Chicken Inn who had made the first move.

"With Sadiki what is left is the reverse clearance but he is not yet training with the team. We expect him to join the team soon," said Chizondo.

With the coming in of new players, including a new striker from division one, it is expected that at least two strikers will be offloaded. There are chances Brian Muzondiwa could be on his way out.

"Agrippa Murimba is the only one who has so far been loaned to Shabanie Mine. We have also taken on board Hamadzashe Moyo from division one and he is a striker.

"Agrippa was struggling for game time and the hope is that he will get more game time there. He is the only one so far who has moved," she said.
