DYNAMOS' aspirations to defend their league title has been dealt a huge blow amid reports that defence stalwart Sidney Linyama is heading for the DRC to sign for AS Vita this week.

This means the Dynamos defender who did not feature for his team in the Chibuku Super Cup against FC Platinum on Sunday will again not be available this weekend.

Dynamos make the trip to Bulawayo for Sunday’s top of the table clash against leaders Chicken Inn which has a huge bearing on the championship.

Dynamos team manager Richard Chihoro confirmed the departure of Linyama.

“He is going for trials. We will miss him. He is a key player but I think we have equally good replacements,” said Chihoro.

However, it has been established that the player will not need to undergo trials since the club has been tracking him from the time they played Dynamos in the Caf Champions League last year.

The DRC player transfer window is still open with their season set to kick-off on October 18.

Dynamos are pursuing for their fifth successive league title but currently reeling from an injury-induced defence crisis.

Linyama’s departure comes as a further blow to a team that has set itself a target of a perfect win record in their final seven matches in order to have a chance of retaining the championship.

The team is already thin at the back with Linyama’s fellow central defender and team captain Augustine Mbara injured and ruled out for a month.

Against FC Platinum, Dynamos used a makeshift centre-back partnership of Obey Mwerahari and Elisha Muroiwa.

Mwerahari, the scorer of the winning penalty against FC Platinum, is a natural right-back, but has been previously used as an anchor-man.
