CAPS United are angling to sign former How Mine midfielder Devon Chafa as they seek a replacement for Dominic Mukandi who dumped them for city rivals Dynamos.

Mukandi was one of the pillars of Caps United's campaign last term under Lloyd Chitembwe and the Green Machine are desperate to replace him.

Chafa, who is already training with the Green Machine while negotiations for a contract continue, joined How Mine from Dynamos on a one-year contract in January last season.

However, following the expiry of his contract on December 31, the midfielder has opted to join rivals Caps United.

Caps United team manager Shakespear Chinogwenya confirmed that Chafa was training with them with a view to sign him on.

"He is training with us while negotiations are taking place. By the end of the week we should have finalised everything," said Chinogwenya.

Several other players including winger Tafadzwa Rusike and Allen Gahadzikwa are also training with Caps United hoping to impress Chitembwe and sign contracts.

The Green Machine have already signed Edmore “Zikeeper” Sibanda from Division One side Gunners.

Left-back Ronald Pfumbidzai who returned after an unsuccessful spell in Denmark, 2014 Soccer Star of the Year Dennis Dauda and former Triangle midfielder Cabby Kamhapa.

Defender Method Mwanjali and Simba Nhivi are also set to be part of the squad this season having been training with the team since last season although they had not been registered.

Caps United whose president Farai Jere has declared they were targeting to win the championship this season have also tied down utility player Hardlife Zvirekwi to a three-year deal.

Zvirekwi is currently with the Warriors in Rwanda for the African Nations Championship (Chan) tournament. He was handed the arm band to lead the team at the tournament following the injury to Danny Phiri.

Two other Caps United players, defender Stephen Makatuka and Joel Ngodzo are also in Rwanda.

Caps United who began their pre-season preparations on January 19, finished in fifth position in the league in the previous campaign but Chitembwe believes the Green Machine deserve better.
