Wadi’s JDR Stars Move Almost Done


By Tafadzwa Chigandiwa

Caps United forward Ishmael Wadi’s move to play in South Africa for Glad African Championship side JDR Stars is now imminent, a source close to the player confirmed to Sly Media News.

According to the source, the 28-year-old’s move to join the Pretoria based side on a two-year-deal with an option to extend was almost a done deal.

However, the club is yet to announce it officially.


“Wadi impressed the JDR Stars coaching department and the club owners have decided to rope him in for next season,” said the source.

“He will sign a two-year contract either today (Thursday) or tomorrow (Friday).

“Apart from a two-year deal, the club is ready to offer the player a room to extend his contract by one more year.”


The Caps United player, Wadi, announced his arrival in Pretoria early this week,
after being invited by the club to undergo a two-week long trial.
Nicknamed The Hammer Boys, JDR Stars were formed in 2011.

JDR Stars finished in the top eight in a 16-team competition during last season’s National First Division (NFD) campaign.

The Hammer Boys were sixth on the log with 43 points, nine behind former Warriors goalkeeper Tapuwa Kapini’s Sekhukhune United who got promoted into the top flight for the first time.
