Songani has been in the North African country for over a week having travelled with another Zimbabwean player, Last Jesi, agent George Deda and ex-Warriors striker Edward Sadomba, a former Al Hilal player.

Jesi, on loan at FC Platinum from Manica Diamonds, officially signed for Al Hilal last Thursday on a three-year deal. Deda yesterday said Songani is still being looked at by the Al Hilal coaches who will have to make a decision in the coming days as the transfer window comes to a close.

According to Deda, Sadomba and him have been given the mandate to restructure Al Hilal.

“Silas Songani is still having a run. We have been mandated to rebuild the team with the special advisor Sadomba helping in every aspect,’’ Deda said.

The 31-year-old Songani joined FC Platinum at the beginning of the year on a two-year contract on his return to the country from Denmark, where he had been based since 2014. The Sunday News
