IT’S only three days before the mid-season transfer window curtain comes down, but there has been little activity on the market.

The main attraction of the transfer period has been a player exodus looming at the Zvishavane-based premiership outfit FC Platinum.
The country’s biggest clubs Highlanders and Dynamos have been up and down the market with DeMbare finally making two acquisitios.
Unfortunately for Bosso, their intended deals have been hitting brick walls.
A player exodus is said to be looming at the platinum miners, as Zambian defender Aaron Katebe who joined the much-fancied side early this year from Hwange left the country for a trial stint in Denmark.
A source from the club confirmed the development that Katebe was in Denmark for a two- week trial stint.
“It’s true that Aaron left Zambia on Tuesday for Denmark where he will be for a two-week trial stint. The other player who is on yet another trial stint is Donald Ngoma, who is at South Africa’s Amazulu. From what has happened so far, there are signs that Amazulu could sign the player, so we might be losing him again,” said the source.
According to our sources, Platinum were almost about to strike a deal with Highlanders for striker Nelson Mazivisa, as Bosso want to bolster their attack but the deal has since been put on hold because of the imminent move to South Africa by Ngoma.
Since promotion in 2011, FC Platinum, who have always flexed their financial muscles, are in the market to land the best players in the land — they have so far employed five coaches.
Highlanders, who recalled loaned striker Gabriel Nyoni, have three days to finalise a possible deal for former Railstars hitman Master Masitara, who has been playing in the Botswana Be Mobile league.
In Harare, the Glamour Boys finaly agreed to an initial one-year deal with former CAPS United utility player Oscar Machapa. The Harare giants also reunited with prodigal son Benjamin Marere, who also penned a one-year contract.
Dynamos chairman Keni Mubaiwa confirmed that the club had signed Machapa, while Marere opened up to The Standard about his move “back home”.
DeMbare is also considering snapping Tafadzwa Rusike who has been training with the club, as well as defender Victor Kamhuka who could be a good cover to their injury-prone defence.
