Plaza, Winchester & Marshall linked.
Trinidad and Tobago striker Willis Plaza is heading to Belgium today via-London to seek-out a possible move to Belgian third division side Cercle Sportif Visé, the new Club of former Central FC's head coach Terry Fenwick.
The prolific Pro League striker is off to Belgium for contractual talks. Now a free agent and after an impressive half season with Central FC, Plaza and his management team have been receiving numerous offers for his services including another Belgian second division club and a first division team from Switzerland.
"One club (CS Visé) is leading the race, once personal terms and conditions can be agreed, we will make a statement on any signings" added his manager, Narada Wilson of TBL Sports."
Visé is a Belgian football club from the city of Visé in the province of Liège. They are playing in the Belgian second division. The club plays its home matches at Stade de la Cité de l'Oie in Visé. They are nicknamed Les Oies (the geese), after the city of Visé nickname. They were relegated last season to the third division and are looking to strengthen up their chances to win back promotion.
Plaza meanwhile, has represented his country's senior team 15 times and has 5 goals to his name.
The former Arima Senior Comprehensive player has played in both Trinidad and Tobago and Vietnam. Plaza came through the ranks of San Juan Jabloteh under the then head coach Terry Fenwick, before heading to Vietnamese Clubs Navibank Saigon and Sông Lam Nghệ An respectively.
In January 2014 the Mount Hope-born striker moved back to Trinidad and Tobago where he reunited with Terry Fenwick at T&T's newest football league club team Central FC. Since his signing Plaza has racked up 18 goals in 20 overall matches and copped the golden boot and most offensive player of the year awards. He is represented by TBL Sports Management whom by the way also represents Central FC's defender Yohance Marshall.
Speaking of which, during this year's Word Cup in Brazil, Marshall has also been shopping the market for a possible move. The defender had talks with Brazilian Seria-B club team Santa Cruz FC and they have shown a strong interest in him, however, Brazil has a year round window for locals and not a fixed window for internationals, therefore, TBL Sports are awaiting a set date for a possible move.
And if things doesn't work out in favor of the rugged defender he could very well be on the moved to MLS Canadian based teams Montreal Impact and, Vancouver Whitecaps, the club of T&T international Carlyle Mitchell as both is said to be showing some interest in the player however, with the limitations on international players set by MLS the club is awaiting some outgoing transfers in order to make room for further international signings.
Central FC's young footballer of the year Tobago-born striker Rundell Winchester, who, contract runs out in 2016 with the Sharks is also on Terry Fenwick's hot-list and is expected to join Plaza at CS Visé pending terms agreement.
The 20-year old former Stokely Vale FC striker has been a revolution for both club and country and looks almost certain to join CS Visé. In-addition to him being named young footballer of the year at Central FC, the speedy attacker were also voted by club and supports for the goal of the season.
Both Winchester and Plaza are likely to be signed as CS Visé has shown the most interest and with Fenwick there the move could work in both parties favor, however, there are one hiccup, the 46% tax on players salary is a major downfall and CS Visé will really have to dig deep in their pockets if they want both players signatures.
Central FC meantime isn't sitting and waiting and is already trying to fill the void by recent signings of Elijah Manners from San Juan Jabloteh, former T&TEC player 19-year-old midfielder Nathaniel Garcia, and 16-year-old Levi Garcia from Siparia Spurs. Also signing on is 19-year-old Denzil Daniel.
Zoran Vranes has been installed coach of Central FC which finished second in the Pro League last season under Englishman Terry Fenwick.
