After failing to clinch a deal with South Africa Premier League side Jomo Cosmos, Flames and Blue Eagles midfielder John ‘CJ’ Banda could find solace in Mozambique side Clube Ferroviário de Nampula who are tipped to offer him a contract.
Banda left for South Africa on Wednesday to join the Mozambican national league side pre-season training in Johannesburg.
The Blue Eagles captain was optimistic that this time around things will work out.
“I will be able to say more once I meet the team’s officials in Johannesburg on whether I will be on trials or they will offer me an outright deal,” Banda said in an interview yesterday.
He joins teammate Schumacher Kuwali, who is also trying his luck with the Mozambican side.
Kuwali also expressed optimism of being signed by the club.
If successful, they will join compatriots Ndaziona Chatsalira and Green Harawa at the same side. Chatsalira and Green Harawa are reported to have signed two-year contracts.
The Bankers general secretary Chimwemwe Nkhwimba said they are yet to get official communication from the Mozambique side on the two players.
Ferroviário de Nampula are based in Nampula Province. n
