ZIMBABWE Warriors striker, Prince has passed his medical assessment, which paved way for him to complete his move from Highlanders to Azam in Tanzania.
The player, who arrived in the Tanzanian capital city of Dar es Salaam on Sunday, underwent medical tests on Monday, which Azam confirmed he passed. Dube went on sign a contract and will turn out for Azam when the 2020/21 season starts next month.
“Zimbabwe’s international striker, Prince Dube, has passed medical tests ready to join @azamfc, towards next season,’’ posted Azam on Twitter on Monday.
The Tanzanian club later posted a statement on their social media platforms confirming that they had signed the player.
“Azam FC we are happy to inform you that we have completed the registration of Zimbabwe international attacker, Prince Dube, signing him from Highlanders FC. Dube who is one of Zimbabwe’s dangerous attackers, at the national team of local players, comes to Azam FC to increase power in the attack area,’’ read part of the statement.
The Tanzanians said their Serbian coach Aristica Cioaba, is greatly satisfied with Dube’s ability for all the time they followed him until they decided to sign him.
Dube became the seventh registration at free spending Azam in this registration window for next season, with signings being goalkeeper David Kissu, left defender Emmanuel Charles, Ally Niyonzima, attackers, Awesu Awesu, Ismail Aziz and Ayoub Lyanga.
Azam are looking to close off their registration process by signing another foreign striker.
It is understood that Highlanders will pocket US$50 000 from the deal which has seen then part way their most prized possession.
At Azam, the Warriors striker will link up with fellow Zimbabweans, Bruce Kangwa and Never Tigere.
The player’s contract was expiring at the end of this year and Highlander have had to let go of one of their prized possessions who they risked losing for free had they not sold him or enticed into a new deal before 31 December.
