US-based midfielder Yamikani Chester is hoping that second-tier league side North Carolina FC will extend his loan deal which has since expired.
The Flames midfielder signed a three-year deal with Czech Republic third-tier league side MFK Vyskov in January this year, which in turn, loaned him to the American team for a season.
“My loan deal with North Carolina is now over and I am hoping that it will be extended.
“I enjoyed my stint with North Carolina and I would be glad to remain with them, but I will wait to be guided by my parent club [MFK Vyskov] on the way forward,” said the 25-year-old former Be Forward Wanderers and Mighty Tigers playmaker who scored six goals in all competitions.
However, Chester’s United Kingdom-based Malawian manager James Woods Nkhutabasa said the player’s future will be determined soon.
“The season is over in the US and Chester has joined the Flames camp. As for the future, he has a running contract with MFK Vyskov and as a group, we are currently working on the next step and we will share that information once it is ready. For now, we want him to concentrate on Malawi national team camp and also enjoy his break,” he said.
Meanwhile, forgotten former Flames striker Atusaye Nyondo has signed a one-year deal with top Ethiopian club St. George Sports Club.
According to players’ agent Prince Jere, who facilitated the move, Nyondo impressed during trials.
“He impressed the technical panel after training with St. George for three days. He has been offered a satisfactory signing-on fee and salary.
“In fact, they wanted to offer him a three-year deal, but we opted for a year because there is a possibility that he could sign for a Swedish side,” he said.
The former Bloemfontein Celtic, University of Pretoria and SuperSport United forward’s last club was South African National First Division (NFD) side Tshakhuma Tsha Madzivhandila where he only spent a few months before terminating his contract due to unpaid dues.
He was part of the Flames squad which qualified and participated at the 2010 Africa Cup of Nations (Afcon) in Angola.
Nyondo’s last appearance for the Flames was against Morocco in Casablanca last year during the 2019 Africa Cup of Nations (Afcon) qualifier.
