Flames striker Chiukepo Msowoya has at long last finalised the contract termination process with South African Premier Soccer League (PSL) side Orlando Pirates after his contract was officially terminated on Thursday.
Msowoya alongside eight other players, was put on transfer list last month, but the player and his agent Felix Ngamanya Sapao decided to end the contract.
Pirates confirmed on its website that it has parted ways with the 23-year-old striker.
â€œManagement has reached an agreement with Chiukepo Msowoya for the termination of his contract. The club would like to thank Mr. Msowoya for his services and wish him all the best in his future endeavours,â€ read the statement.
The player and his agent could not be reached for a comment on the way forward.
But Sapao was quoted in the South African media that the player will return to Malawi.
â€œFirst and foremost, the transfer window and registration period is closed back home. But as a national team player I have to try and negotiate with the football association to see if he can be registered in the local league.
â€œIt will be very easy to get him a club because what he just needs is to get a club and get fit then we will take it from there. He is a top goal scorer in the national team for the past three years,â€ said Sapao.
He has since been linked with moves to Big Bullets and Silver Strikers although the player himself insisted that he is yet to decide.
Msowoya joined Pirates in 2010 from Mozambican side, Liga Muculmana, but failed to land a regular position in the clubâ€™s starting eleven and was loaned out to Platinum Stars last season.
