The goalminder’s future had been the source of speculation with champions Dynamos rumoured to have been trying to bring him to the capital on numerous attempts.

His previous deal with the platinum miners was expiring at the end of this year and there was a possibility that they were going to lose him.

Mhari has had a remarkable rise in form with the club since Norman Mapeza took charge of the team, with some incredible statistics.

He kept a clean sheet in the Chibuku Super Cup from the first round up to the semi-finals. He was only breached in the final where they beat Harare City to qualify for the CAF Confederation Cup.

Mapeza rewarded him with the captaincy, taking over from Thabani Kamusoko.

FC Platinum media liaison officer Chido Chizondo confirmed the contract extension of the shotstopper.

“He has signed a contract extension with us and is going to be our player for another year.

“He has done extremely well for the club since joining us and we are delighted to continue working with him,” Chizondo continued.

“So far his contract extension is the only confirmed deal for players who will be part of us next season. We have released Benjamin Marere and Talbert Shumba.

“We are still negotiating with some players we want to be part of us in the (CAF) Confederation Cup, but I cannot divulge their names to the media because it will jeopardise negotiations.

“We are expecting to finalise our squad for the Confederation Cup by the 20th of this month,” she said.

The miners are expected to sign Tendai Samanja and Brian Muzondiwa today if they agree terms.
