PRETORIA – Tshwane top-flight outfit SuperSport United have been linked with two players from FC Platinum in Zimbabwe, as well as a Ugandan international.
The Zimbabwean duo are set to undergo a two-week trial with the three-time league champions.
“Kevin Moyo, who is one of our key players and Nigel Makumbe, who is on loan to Highlanders, have been invited for trials at SuperSport United. They will be in South Africa from July 3 to July 16,” FC Platinum spokesperson Chido Chizondo said.
Moyo in particular has been in the spotlight after some impressive displays in defence for Zimbabwe in the Cosafa Cup tournament earlier this month in Polokwane. Makumbe is a slightly-built young attacking midfielder who has been earning some promising reviews in his home country.

In another report, Ugandan defender Murushid Juuko, who plays his football for Tanzanian giants Simba SC, has also been linked with Matsatsansta.
“Kawowo Sports understands that SuperSport United have already sent an invitation to the defender who is in Uganda at the moment and will link up with the club immediately. Visa issues are sorted,” the Ugandan publication stated.
The highly-rated 24-year-old Juuko was previously linked with a move to Orlando Pirates, whose head coach Milutin ‘Micho’ Sredojevic had worked with the player while he was in charge of the Ugandan national team.
SC Simba, meanwhile, announced the signing of Ivorian defender Pascal Serge Wawa last week, adding weight to the likelihood of Juuko departing.
SuperSport have allowed two defenders, Tefu Mashamaite and Denwin Farmer, to leave the club in the off-season.
