THE Premier Soccer League (PSL) has told clubs to submit their 2014 squads by Friday to allow the league to start processing player licences.

Kennedy Ndebele, the PSL chief executive officer said the league needs time to verify documents submitted by clubs so that any irregularities can be addressed before the Zifa transfer window closes on March 31.

"What clubs have to understand is that we want them to provide their full list not provisional squads as earlier reported so that we start working on licences,” he said.

“If players are coming from other clubs, we want clearance letters to accompany the documents that they deliver to us by end of business on Friday. If there is no clearance letter for a player joining a new club, we will not register that player.”

Ndebele also said early submission of squad lists would also protect players from being abused by clubs.

"By asking the clubs to submit their lists now, we are also doing our duty as a professional league to protect players that teams tend to dump at the last minute,” he said.

“I believe that by now clubs know the players they want and it is only fair for players that are not in their plans to seek employment elsewhere before the window closes," Ndebele said.

Clubs that want to make adjustments before the March 31 cut-off will be allowed to make additions or subtractions to their squads.

Most teams have been busy in the transfer market with Dynamos and How Mine almost done. The two clubs had an early 2014 season kick off due to their participation in the Orange Caf Champions League and Orange Confederation Cup respectively, almost done.

Dynamos squad

Harare giants Dynamos have during the season's break managed to lure defender Themba Ndlovu from Buffaloes, defensive midfielder Walter Mukanga (Triangle), Masimba Mambare from rivals Highlanders, Ronald Chitiyo (Monomotapa) and Tafadzwa Rusike (club less).

How Mine, who lost striker Simba Sithole to Ajax Cape Town of South Africa, were also busy in the transfer market getting Young Warriors' goalkeeper Donovan Bernard from Aces Youth Academy.

They also roped in former DeMbare defenders Morris Kadzola and George Magariro, former Caps United midfielder Marvel Samaneka and Edmore Muzanenhamo from Zifa Southern Region Division One Soccer League outfit Ntabazinduna Prison.


Their top goal scorer in the Orange Confederation Cup with three goals from two matches Kuda Musharu joined them from Monomotapa.

Highlanders business

Elsewhere, Bulawayo giants Highlanders have also managed to attract quality players in the form of Kudakwashe Mahachi who is on loan from South Africa's Mamelodi Sundowns, the trio of Joel Ngodzo, Welcome Ndiweni and striker Charles Sibanda from FC Platinum.

Attacking midfielder Valentine Ndaba joined Bosso from Shabanie Mine with winger Rahman Kutsanzira retracing his footsteps back to the club from Caps United.

Goalkeeper Njabulo Nyoni and Felix Chindungwe complete the list of players that have been signed by Bosso having turned out for Chicken Inn last season.

Highlanders' attempts to sign national team midfielder Danny "Deco" Phiri from Chicken Inn appear to have hit a brick wall with the player also said to have lost hope in joining the Bulawayo giants. However his agent Fortune Chisale is expected in Bulawayo today to meet Chicken Inn.

Despite assembling a formidable side, Highlanders does not have a capable anchorman and right back.

However, it is the capture of Chindungwe that might see the club's registration for the player taking long as Chicken Inn claim that the dreadlocked player has a contract with them, yet reports say his deal with the Innscor Africa powered club expired on December 31.

Submitting registration papers to the league early should be a blessing to Bosso as the matter is likely to be resolved within the next month, meaning that Chindungwe could play for Highlanders when the season starts at the end of March.
