It’s a done deal! Blue Eagles duo of John ‘CJ’ Banda and Schumacher Kuwali can afford a smile following the completion of their transfer move to a Mozambican top premier league side Ferroviario de Nampula.
The deal was finally sealed on Thursday 25th February, 2015.
Both the players agent Nelito James Pondamale and Blue Eagles Team Manager Gabriel Chirwa confirmed the development in an interview with Nyasa Times.
“The deal has been sealed today (Thursday) and the players are leaving for Mozambique this Saturday,” Nelito Pondamale told Nyasa Times.
According to Pondamale, the two have signed a one year contract.
On his part, Chirwa said Blue Eagles FC agreed to let the players go with no strings attached.
“We are for the welfare of our players so we have let the boys to go to Mozambique” said Chirwa adding that there is no ‘loan fee’.
But the two could not be drawn to comment whether it is true that the duo will receive a K6.5 million signing on fee and a K1.1 million monthly salary.
To Banda, the opportunity comes after he failed to clinch a deal with South Africa’s Premier Soccer League (PSL) side Jomo Cosmos early this year because the club had exhausted its foreign quota.
And during his trials with de Nampula, he was also seriously wanted by another Mozambican club Desportivo de Maputo.
