KAIZER Chiefs and Warriors defender Lincoln Zvasiya is facing a nightmarish six months on the sidelines after his Absa Premier Soccer League (PSL) outfit failed to find a club to loan him to.
Zvasiya is contracted to Kaizer Chiefs, but was not registered to play in South Africa this season following his six-month loan spell with Greek side OFI Crete from July last year.
The former FC Platinum defender could not be registered with Chiefs upon his return as the club had already exhausted its foreign quota.
Amakhosi were reported to be mooting a loan deal for the defender to join Dynamos, but the deal did not materialise with DeMbare said to be in favour of a season-long deal than a short-term one.
Upon return, Zvasiya seemed destined to join Harare City, but the City Fathers are reported to have sent their final list of players to PSL without his name.
Kaizer Chiefs corporate communications manager Vina Maphosa confirmed that they have failed to find a club for Zvasiya this season.
“He is back in Zimbabwe. We have not found a team for him since his contract in Greece was cancelled midseason. We are working on next season for his move,” he said.
Meawhile, Mamelodi Sundowns midfielder Khama Billiat is hopeful of shrugging off a foot injury in time to feature again before the end of March.
The Zimbabwean suffered the injury during the Brazilians’ clash with Ajax Cape Town in February 21 and has not featured since.
However, he is optimistic about returning to the fray in time to make a big impact at the business end of the season.
“I will be better. It’s a metatarsal injury. I have been with this for two weeks. The doctors have given me two weeks for recovery,” Billiat said.
As a result of the injury, Billiat was forced to withdraw from Zimbabwe’s squad which played Malawi on Wednesday.
