Silver Strikers captain Lucky Malata is back from Mozambique where he is reported to have clinched a deal with a Mocambola side, Grupo Desportivo da Hidroeléctrica de Cahora Bassa (HBC Songo).
While confirming Malata’s Mozambique interests, broker of the deal, Nelito James Pondamale, refused to disclose the name of the club.
“Yes, he was in Mozambique but now he is back. I cannot disclose the name of the club to the media until the deal is finalised,” Pondamale said in an interview yesterday.
Silver treasurer Fred Kalonga, who is also acting general secretary, said they gave Malata’s trip a blessing.
Kalonga was also confident that Malata would be signed by the Mozambican side.
“It seems the Mozambican side has been monitoring Lucky [Malata] for a while,” Kalonga said.
“That is why they just asked us to release him for two days because it was not trials as such.
“I am sure it was just to discuss personal terms otherwise, I am quite convinced that they will sign him.”
The Nation understands that the former Flames captain is set to join former Silver teammates Frank Banda and Charles Swini at HBC Songo in Tete Province. n
