CHARLES Sibanda has completed his move to Highlanders after penning a one-year deal with the Bulawayo giants at the club offices yesterday.
The former FC Platinum attacking midfielder has retraced his footsteps to his boyhood club after joining the Zvishavane-based miners in 2011 from Motor Action.
Highlanders chairman Peter Dube confirmed the move, but said he had not been briefed by the club’s negotiators that include treasurer Jerry Sibanda and secretary Andrew Tapela.
“I am sure everything is in order. I believe he is now our player although I have not received anything from our negotiators as yet, it being a weekend,” he said.
Sibanda confirmed that the Warriors player has put pen to paper with Highlanders but referred all questions to Dube.
Charles, who was accompanied by another former FC Platinum player Welcome Ndiweni, also confirmed that he has inked a one-year deal with the Bulawayo giants.
“I have signed a one-year contract with Highlanders and I will start training on Tuesday,” he said.
Bosso are also close to securing a deal with Chicken Inn captain Felix Chindungwe after losing out on Hwange right-back Erick Chipeta who is in South Africa where he is reportedly on the verge of joining University of Pretoria.
Meanwhile Milton Ncube and Peter “Rio” Moyo are staying put at Highlanders after they also signed new contracts with Bosso.
Sibanda said Ncube had entered into a one-year deal with Highlanders while Moyo, who had his contract expiring in March had extended his stay by another year.
“We have everything under control. Milton has signed and Rio just extended his contract,” Sibanda said.
