Mighty Wanderers want Zimbabwean club Caps United to release Gerald Phiri Jnr to enable him feature for the Nomads until next month when he will be eligible to play in Zimbabwe.
The Nomads are yet to issue a clearance for the player as negotiations pertaining to the deal have not yet been finalised.
Wanderers chairperson George Chamangwana said: “We did speak to the boy’s father [Gerald Phiri Snr] on the matter, but nothing concrete was agreed.
“We feel it will be to the benefit of both the player and us if he can be sent back until; next month when he is expected to be cleared.”
But Phiri Snr said while he has no problems with the Nomads intention, they need to approach Caps United on their suggestion.
“I don’t think there would be any problem, but that would depend on how they agree with their counterparts at Caps.
“However, Caps have made it clear that they would rather have the player remain in Harare so that they continue assessing him,” he said.
The two teams are reported to have agreed on a $15 000 [about K6 million] transfer-fee.
