Luphahla to move in December

luphahlaJOHANNEBURG Zimbabwe Warriors midfielder, Joel Luphahla, (Pictured) hopes to resume his playing career next month, when the South African Home Affairs office is expected to have finalized matters regarding his permanent residence.


Luphahla, who has plied his trade in the ABSA Premiership for more than five years, recently made an application for a permanent residence permit, which will enable him to play as a non-foreigner in the neighbouring country.

The speedy right winger, who has been inactive since parting ways with Platinum Stars at the end of last season, this week told The Zimbabwean that he expected his application to be approved at the end of this month.

The Home Affairs office has told me that my papers will be ready at the end of November and once I get them, I expect to sign for a new club and start playing, said Luphahla, who says that he is currently training on his own to remain fit.

I am glad that I have received several offers from clubs in this country and will sign for one of them in December, he said.

The ABSA Premiership was last week granted permission to move the summer transfer window forward to November 15.

The gangling former Highlanders player hopes to take advantage of that development to speedily return to action.
