Nyasa Big Bullets and Malawi international striker Chiukepo Msowoya has landed a five months deal with South Africa’s Premier Soccer League (PSL) side Golden Arrows, according to reports.
Msowoya flew to South Africa two weeks ago and has been assessed by the club since then.
Golden Arrows General Manager Gordon Masondo confirmed being in negotiations and close to sign the former Orlando Pirates Malawian international.
“We’ve been assessing Msowoya for a while now and are in negotiations with him. We are certain we will clinch a deal with him soon. His contract with his team in Malawi (Nyasa Big Bullets) has expired. The good thing is he is familiar with South African football as he has played here for Pirates,” Masondo was quoted by South Africa’s Kick-Off.
Msowoya failed to clinch a deal with Bloemfontein Celtic in January last year despite impressing the technical panel as it was reported that Celtic had already exceeded its foreign quota.
He then signed a year long deal with a local club Nyasa Big Bullets.
During the 2015/16 season, he finished as a joint top goal scorer in the Super League alongside Red Lions striker Innocent Bokosi with 14 goals apiece.
And in the just ended 2016 season, he alongside Mighty Be Forward Wanderers marksman Peter Wadabwa finished as runners up to Richard Mbulu of Mafco Fc on the top goal scorers chart.
They scored 16 goals while Mbulu won the golden boot with 19 goals.
