His exploits have not gone unnoticed as Greentown, who are campaigning in the Chinese League One, have opened talks with Qarabag for the 27-year-old's signature.

This was confirmed by an impeccable source, who is close to both Ndlovu and his club. 

"Yes, it is true Greentown are after Dino's services," the source told Goal .

"The player also wants to join the Chinese club. They are very serious about acquiring him from Qarabag," the source continued.
