The Zimbabwean has it on good authority that the Mpumalanga Province-based side is set to unveil the 41-year-old ahead of their

2015/16 season, which kicks off in August. Kapowezha himself confirmed the news.

“I have not started yet, but I am expecting the officials to conclude the deal within the next two weeks,” Kapowezha told The Zimbabwean in a recent interview.

He explained the hold-up to the deal.

“At the moment, one of the shareholders has indicated willingness to continue with Spurs, but he must put pen to paper first to confirm his involvement. Once that happens, then I will also be part of Spurs next season,” the former Warriors utility player said.

Spurs survived the drop to the second division by a whisker last season, finishing one place above the relegation places in the 16-team table.

If Kapowezha is officially confirmed, as it looks highly likely, he will link up with his teenage son, Elasto Junior, who joined towards the end of the season, as well as countrymen, Patrick and Peter Mubaiwa.

With 25 caps to his name, including five at senior national level, Kapowezha snr also had stints in his homeland and Poland.

He has previously been a manager at the now-defunct FC AK, the last club he played for till he hung up his boots in 2012.
