Reports in Zimbabwe reval that Caps United striker Ronald Chitiyo is set to join Tunisian giants CS Sfaxien, but is just waiting for medicals.
The Castle Lager Premier Soccer League champions’ CEO Cuthbert Chitima said Chitiyo’s deal was as good as done.
It is reported that the Tunisian side has sent another air ticket for Chitiyo to travel to Tunisia on Saturday, August 5.
The player impressed Sfaxien's technical team during their CAF Champions League, Group B showdown against Al Ahli Tripoli of Libya at the Stade Taieb Mhiri in Sfax.

Although United lost 4-2, Chitiyo’s contribution saw him netting what was seen as one of the best goals in the tournament and Sfaxien were convinced he was the kind of player they were scouting for.
“His (Chitiyo’s) deal is almost done, as he is now waiting for medicals. He was supposed to have gone there last week on Thursday, but the airline he was supposed to use demanded that he obtains a visa before he travels,” said Chitima to the News day website.
“But when we went there for our African Champions League match against Al Ahly Tripoli, we got our visas at the airport in Tunisia. The club had suggested that he travels to Tunisia and obtain his visa on entry.
“So what is just left are those papers for the deal to be finalised. The club was travelling and wanted him to link up with others before the weekend, but due to the delays they said he could come when the rest of the squad has returned to their base.”
