“I can tell you the player also has offers from Sofapaka where he has been training and is waiting to hear from a Zambian club," a source privy to the discussions told Goal.

Platinum, who are the reigning league champions, are best remembered for eliminating Sofapaka from the Confederation Cup in 2015. Should the move materialise, the player could be the first Kenyan in recent times to move to Zimbabwe.
