Highlanders have signed Devine Mhindiriri who is a Zimbabwe national Under-20 player.

Mhindiriri, 18, signed a two-year contract from relegated Bulawayo City where the current Bosso assistant coach, Bekithemba Ndlovu, was the mentor.

According to NewsDay, club chief executive officer Nhlanhla Dube confirmed Mhindiriri’s capture yesterday.

“Devine (Mhindiriri) has been signed. He went straight into the Matopos’ camp. He has signed for two years and, hopefully, he does well in that period so we can extend. The technical team has been tracking him for a while,” he said.

Mhindiriri could be a replacement for Nigel Makumbe, who was on a year’s loan from FC Platinum and is reportedly on his way to ZPC Kariba.

The young forward was part of the Young Warriors squad that lost to South Africa 4-3 in a penalty shoot-out in the final of the Cosafa Under-20 Championship in Zambia in December last year.
