Egyptian attending trials at ‘Mighty’

EGYPTIAN striker Muhammad Elbaa is attending trials at Super Division Mufuilira Wanderers, ahead of the 2017 campaign.
Muhammad, a free agent, is attending trials at the legendary outfit.
Club secretary Goodwell Mateyo said in an interview in Mufulira yesterday that Elbaa was brought to Shinde Stadium on recommendation from coach Ahmed Suliman.
Mateyo said Muhammad has not signed a contract with the club contrary to social media reports that he has penned a three-year deal.
“Yes, he is around, but still on trials. We cannot just go and sign him without assessing him. He was recommended to us by the coach [Suliman].  The player is a free agent, but negotiations have not even started because the player has not completed trials which will run for the next one week,” he said.
And defender Warren Kunda, midfielders Progress Kalenga and Mike Katiba have ditched Wanderers.
“Warren [Kunda] and Progress [Kalenga] have gone to Green Eagles while Mike [Katiba] will be joining Green Buffaloes and Allan Kamwanga junior is negotiating a deal with Power Dynamos.
“We are not seating idle we are also negotiating with a number of players to replace those who have left the club so that we have a formidable squad,” Mateyo said.
Wanderers finished 11th with 39 points last season.
Meanwhile, Lumwana Radiants has recruited defenders Chiyesu Shakafunya and Chewe Mukuka to strengthen their squad.
Shakafunya and Mukuka have joined from Power Dynamos and Nchanga Rangers, respectively.
Shakafunya has been at Arthur Davies Stadium for over five seasons, but failed to impress the technical bench.
Mukuka, who had a stint with Konkola Blades and Nkana, also found it tough at Rangers.
According to club insiders, the two have since started training with the Beston Chambeshi-mentored side.
But Lumwana chairman Nkumbu Sinkolongo could neither deny nor confirm the presence of the two players.
“We have not concluded the deals but by tomorrow [today] I will be able to update you on the players that have joined us and those that have left the club,” he said.
Lumwana will make their second appearance in the elite league after surviving relegation last season.
