Flames veteran forward Esau Kanyenda has completed his hunt for a club by signing a two-year contract with South African National First Division (NFD) side Bay United.
Bay United is in the process of changing its name to Polokwane Stars following the ownerâ€™s move to sell its franchise.
Kanyendaâ€”whose last club was Danish Second Division side B1893â€” on Wednesday confirmed that he is set to start a new lease of life with the South African second-tier side.
According to media reports from the rainbow domain, the battle-hardened striker is also set to be offered the teamâ€™s captaincy.
â€œThe teamâ€™s management hinted that I would be offered the captaincy,â€ he said.
Kanyenda spent a decade in Russia where he played for teams like FC Rostov, Lokomotiv Moscow, FC Kamaz, Rotor and Dynamo Brynsky.
It will not be the first time for the veteran striker to grace the South African soccer fields having starred for Jomo Cosmos between 2001 and 2002 before he went to Russia.
Kanyendaâ€™s move to sign for United means that there will be four Malawians in the NFD, the others are Jimmy Zakazaka and Peter Wadabwa (Thanda Royal Zulu) and Tawonga Chimodzi (Santos).
Zakazaka also had a stint with United a few years ago.
