- Highlands Park head coach Owen da Gama is keen to secure the services of Tendai Ndoro
- Ndoro is currently a free agent and not bound to the usual transfer window rules and regulations
- Da Gama said he was awaiting a final decision on the matter from the club’s management
Highlands Park head coach Owen da Gama is ready and willing to sign former Cape Town Ajax striker Tendai Ndoro but is awaiting a final decision by the club’s management on the matter. Ndoro has been spotted training with the club in recent days.
Ndoro is currently classified as a free agent having parted ways with Ajax Cape Town by mutual agreement at the end of last season. This means Ndoro is not bound to the usual transfer window rules and regulations and makes him free to join a club at short notice.
Da Gama confirmed that Ndoro was training with his squad of players but admitted the final decision about whether he would be signed by the newly promoted Highlands Park rested with the club’s management team.
Briefly.co.za gathered that da Gama said he needed to meet with Highlands Park boss Larry Brookstone to discuss the matter because there were other matters other than the playing side which needed to be dealt with.
Da Gama told Citizen.co.za that he would have more information about the way forward once he had met with Brookstone.
Ndoro shot to infamy in South Africa when Ajax Cape Town was docked points for allowing him to play in the opening part of the previous PSL season.
The South African Football Association (SAFA) arbitration process found that Ndoro had been ineligible to play in South Africa during the early part of the season. This led to the so-called Ndorogate saga.
Ndoro and Ajax denied the saga had anything to do with his decision to part ways with the club, both parties agreed that it was in the mutual interest of both the club and the player to move on.
Ndoro has on several occasions claimed that he could join virtually any club in the PSL and even boasted that he had more than one concrete offers on the table.
These boasts seem to have come to nothing as Ndoro is yet to play in the new season five matches in and after the close of the official transfer window.
