HARARE - Dynamos secretary-general Webster Chikengezha has confirmed that the club are likely to be less active in the transfer window and revealed that they are looking to sign at least three more players.
The Glamour Boys, who saw their four-year dominance on the Castle Premiership title ended by Chicken Inn, in the just-ended season, are looking at assembling a squad capable wrestling the title from Chicken Inn.
Despite ending the 2015 season without any major silverware, Chikengezha feels DeMbare remains a formidable side and need few reinforcements to challenge for honours.
“We are not short of players but we might want extra cover in certain positions. We are not recruiting just for the sake of being active on the market, we are recruiting with specific positions in mind,” Chikengezha told the Daily News.
“We are only bringing in four new players during this transfer window. We have already signed Tichaona Chipunza from Triangle which means we are now left with three players.
“There is no need to rush, we are taking our time. We have 17 senior players with running contracts and four junior players so the squad is there even if it means the season kicks off tomorrow.
“We have a certain budget that we are working on. We don’t want to put ourselves in a fix where we promise players something we cannot afford. For now there are no players we are negotiating with and as soon we have something new we will advise.
“We will have a strong squad for the 2016 season capable of fighting for honours.”
While DeMbare will be eager to fight for honours in the upcoming season they have lost some of their influential players in talisman Ronald Chitiyo and defender Blessing Moyo as well as goalkeeper Artwell Mukandi.
“No players have indicated that they want to leave the club. It’s offseason and people will always talk. In as far as we are concerned all our players are happy and as a matter of fact some of them have since renewed their contracts,” said Chikengezha.
Defender Sydney Linyama, goalkeeper Tatenda Mukuruva and Elisha Muroiwa have extended their contracts with the Harare giants.
