Ndlovu was linked with a move to Croatian side HNK Vukovar 1991 however reports suggest that move was prevented by visa issues.

And now, the talented midfielder will reportedly be given a chance to impress at the Mayfair club.

The Buccaneers currently have Kabelo Dlamini and Ndabayithethwa Ndlondlo who can slot into that number 10 role.

While Ndlondlo’s preferred position is slightly further back, Dlamini hasn’t proved himself in the free-role position despite a number of opportunities to do so.

A breath of fresh air in the form of a young yet highly skilled Zimbabwean may be just what Jose Riveiro needs to spark his team’s attacking play.
