Belgian side KV Oostende ready to talk to Mamelodi Sundowns about Mushekwi’s services

Mushekwi has impressed the KV Oostende manager Frederick Vanderbiest during his week-long trial in Belgium, and it is now up to the two teams to agree on a transfer fee

The Zimbabwean-born striker Nyasha Mushekwi is now waiting on Mamelodi Sundowns to decide if he will join Belgian side KV Oostende.

According to Mushekwi’s agent Ralph Nkomo, the Belgian outfit really wants to sign the 25-year-old forward ahead of the new season.

“He has done very well. The team is ready to come down and speak to Sundowns,” said Nkomo on Metro FM.

Mushekwi’s imminent move to Europe brings an end to Orlando Pirates’ hopes to lure the player to Parktown during this transfer window.

Nkomo revealed that Mushekwi is excited about moving to Europe, and that the player is confident of commanding a regular place in the starting line-up and make his mark.

“The boy is excited and he really thinks he can make it right there (in Belgium),” added Nkomo.

KV Oostende has just been promoted to the Belgian Pro League (Jupiler) after winning the second division title.

Mushekwi’s contract with Sundowns expires at the end of next season, and therefore only they can decide if the Zimbabwean international will move.

Nonetheless, Sundowns have made it clear that they won’t stand in any of their player’s way if any European clubs knock on the door for their services.

This came after it was reported that striker Katlego Mphela is wanted by Hull City manager Steve Bruce although no formal offer has been tabled by the newly promoted EPL side.
