FC Platinum are on verge of losing another player to Sudanese giants Al Hilal with star midfielder, Silas Songani set to become the second player to leave the Zimbabwean Champions within a week.
The team could be paying the price for their consistent participation in continental club football amid revelations that talented midfielder, Silas Songani is on the verge of joining Al-Hilal subject to passing a medical.
After spending several seasons in Europe, Songani signed for the platinum miners in January this year and featured in the Castle Challenge Cup final against Highlanders in Match before the season was halted by Covid-19.
Songani was the difference in that match as his brace confirmed FC Platinum as the undisputed Zimbabwean football champions.
FC Platinum spokesperson, Chido Chizondo told ZBC News that negotiations with the Sudanese giants are underway with the player set to leave for North Africa this coming week.
“We can confirm that we are in talks with Al Hilal for a possible move for Silas Songani. The player will go to Sudan for medicals next week and only then can we finalise the deal. The development is good for the club as it clearly shows that the FC Platinum brand is growing on the continent. We hope to continue churning out players who are competitive and make it big on the football front,” said Chizondo.
The development comes a few days after another FC Platinum player Last Jesi joined the Sudanese club on a three-year contract.
Speaking on the upcoming CAF Champions League fixtures, the FC Platinum spokesperson said they are just waiting for government approval to start training.
“We are on standby for the preparations of the African Champions League. All our plans and everything is in place we are just waiting for the government nod to begins our training ahead of the Champions League games”
FC Platinum are racing against time to prepare for the CAF Champions and would need to adjust to the reality that they might plunge straight into the action without playing competitive football since March.
