Silver Strikers enterprising forwards Chawanangwa Kawonga and Frank Banda have sealed a move to launch their professional career at Mozambican top club Costal de Songo.
Banda and Kawonga have both been offered one-year contract the club.
Kawonga disclosed that the package offered to them was better than that at Silver Strikers.
“We have been offered one–year contracts and we are happy because the package and benefits are better than at any club in Malawi,” Kawonga said.
The Under-20 national football team star said they were also motivated by the fact they could use it as a springboard to secure lucrative deals.
“I am also optimistic that playing here in Mozambique could land me better deals somewhere in South Africa or in Europe,” he said.
Silver Strikers General Secretary Mike Tembo confirmed the development saying both players had been pegged at a transfer fee of K3 million each.
Tembo bemoaned the lower price attributing it to the fact that both players approached the team.
“I am sure that if the club had come forward we would have more bargaining power,” Tembo said.
Kawonga and Banda left for Mozambique for trails two weeks in search of greener pasture in a country which is becoming an attractive to Malawian players.
The development should be a blow to Malawi top league champions Big Bullets who were gunning for Kawanga to beef up the squad ahead of the CAF Champions League against Fomboni FC of Coromos Ireland during the weekend of February 13-15.Follow and Subscribe Nyasa TV :
