ZIMBABWE international striker Tendai Ndoro is weighing up his options before the close of the South African football transfer window at the end of the month following his departure from relegated Ajax Cape Town.

Ndoro, who is yet to find a new home since being released by Ajax, says he can’t wait to get back on the field and score goals again.
“I have offers on the table and I can join any team. I have an advantage because I am a free agent and I could join a team at any time,” Ndoro told Vision View Sports.
The former Chicken Inn player, who has recently been linked with Kaizer Chiefs, has not ruled out a move overseas following his disastrous spell in Saudi Arabia.
“My phone keeps ringing. I have an offer and I can’t say I won’t go. My dad represents me now and understands that we need to keep poverty as far from us as possible,” Ndoro commented.
Ndoro, who made eight appearances for Ajax in all competitions‚ scoring just a single goal, also opened up about his involvement in the legal battle which almost threatened the start of the South African Premiership.
“A lot of people blame me for this (Ajax’s relegation). I go to places and someone will say: ‘The league might not start because of you, what’s going on?’” Ndoro said.
“Now it’s good that the league is going to start and I also get a fresh start. I still have to serve my notice, but the two-game ban is only valid in South Africa.”
Ajax opted not to renew the contract of the former Orlando Pirates and Mpumalanga Black Aces striker‚ compounding the costly mistake for the club in securing his services in January.
Having already played for Orlando Pirates and Al-Faisaly last season, Fifa’s rules made the Zimbabwean ineligible to feature for Ajax following his move from Saudi Arabia.
Ajax fell foul of Fifa rules when Ndoro made his debut against Platinum Stars in January‚ and had those points deducted‚ along with points collected in a win over SuperSport United and a draw with Polokwane City.
The matches were awarded to their opponents in an arbitration ruling‚ which plunged Ajax to the foot of the table and automatic relegation‚ rather than being allowed to play in the promotion/relegation play-offs.
Ajax recently accepted they would take their place in the National First Division for the start of the new 2018-19 season.
