Gwekwerere free to rejoin Cosmos: Sono

evans_gwekwerereJOHANNESBURG Zimbabwe international striker Evans Gwekwerere will be free to rejoin South African Premiership side Jomo Cosmos in the January transfer window if his attempt to move to Vietnam fails, Ezenkosi owner Jomo Sono said last week.

The former Dynamos goal-getter signed a two-year contract with V-League club Hai Phong FC in May this year, but the move has stalled over some yet to be disclosed hitches, forcing him to return to South Africa. Sono, who said he was not clear about what complications Gwekwerere was facing, told The Zimbabwean on Sunday at the Rand Stadium last week that the player was welcome to join the club in January.

For now he cannot turn out for us because we have already registered our players with the PSL and had thought that he was moving to Vietnam, said Sono. He recently told us that he wants to return to Dynamos and we have reached an understanding with him, meaning that we will clear him for that short move should he reach an agreement with the Zimbabwean side. He is welcome to rejoin the club in the January transfer window because he is still our player.

Sono said that his club had not yet released an international clearance for Gwekwerere to the Vietnamese outfit, but would not say why, in what appears to be a transfer fee wrangle for the player who propelled Cosmos back into the ABSA Premiership with a brace against Carara Kicks in the promotional play-offs.

Gwekwerere joined Cosmos early last season, after he was off-loaded by Moroka Swallows due to a string of injuries that saw him lose both his form and scoring touch. The player could not be reached for comment on his mobile phone.
