THREE Zimbabwean players - two from local giants Dynamos and rivals Highlanders - have this week sealed deals to join South African premiership sides.

Highlanders defender, Khumbulani Banda, joined Maritzburg United in a two year deal, the club confirmed.

The Warriors left-back had been trying out at United for the past few weeks and the club announced the move on their official website.

“The club has signed 23-year-old Zimbabwean left-back, Khumbulani Banda for two seasons from Highlanders in Zimbabwe,” the club said.

“The young defender has featured four times already for the Zimbabwean National team, and is considered to be a very skilful defender.

“As the list of signings grows in the Team of Choice, pre-season preparations are also going on very well under head Coach Steve Komphela and his technical team.”

Banda is Highlanders’ first export in seven years-the last having been Honour Gombami and Vusa Nyoni who left for Belgium at the beginning of 2007 after leading the Bulawayo giants to their last Premiership title the previous season.

Meanwhile, Pretoria University also confirmed the capture of Warriors defender Patson Jaure from Zimbabwe champions Dynamos.

Jaure signed for the Tuks last week soon after playing in the 1-1 draw derby clash against bitter rivals Caps United before he returned to sort out his work permit.

The ABSA Premiership side confirmed on their Twitter handle that they have secured Jaure’s signature.

“We welcome Partson Jaure, Zimbabwean national team captain to AmaTuks. Great addition to the defence,” wrote the club.

“I signed the contract last week and I am happy to join the club, it’s a positive development for my career,” said Jaure.

Commenting, Dynamos secretary Webster Chikengezha said: “He is a good player whom we are all going to miss but as a club we cannot stand in the way of anyone if he decides to move on with his career elsewhere.

“Hopefully, we are going to see other players in the squad getting the chance to prove themselves. It’s almost a similar situation when Washington Arubi went to join the same club and we had George (Chigova) coming up, here is he now?

“So we are hoping to see others grabbing that opportunity,” said Chikengezha player's contract.

Jaure joins former Dynamos players goalkeeper Washington Arubi and Denver Mukamba who has also joined the club on loan from Bidvest Wits University.

Pretoria University CEO, Jose Ferreira, confirmed Mukamba was now at Tuks.

“Yes, Denver is there, and has signed. That’s it. We’ll announce more details,” said Ferreira.

The forward joined Wits from club Dynamos in 2013 and was the 2012 Soccer Star of the Year in the local premiership.
