Reims court Sunzu


FC SOCHAUX Zambia defender Stopilla Sunzu has been linked with a move to French Ligue 1 outfit Stade Reims ahead of the winter transfer window.
Reims have offered €900,000 (about K8,100,000) for the signature of the Chipolopolo skipper who is currently nursing an injury.
Sochaux have also received an undisclosed offer for the Zambian international from an unnamed Chinese club.
Israel-based FIFA agent Nir Karin confirmed yesterday that the 24-year-old has two official offers but Sochaux are not keen to release him.
“It is true Sunzu has offers and I hope the negotiation with Sochaux will be finished soon. Sunzu deserves to upgrade his life. Stopilla Sunzu got two official offers. The first offer is from Stade Reims, France. They are offering Sochaux €900,000 and a three-year contract for Sunzu.
“The other offer is bigger and from China. Sunzu wants to go as he can upgrade his life and football. Sochaux till now didn’t allow him to go. We hope Sochaux will understand and let him go,” he said in an email from Jerusalem.
Sunzu is keen on making a move during the winter transfer window.
The former TP Mazembe player was close to joining Sunderland and Reading in 2013 but the deal collapsed because the DR Congo outfit insisted on a £4 million transfer fee.
He has also continued being linked with English Barclays Premiership side Arsenal.
Sunzu last season won three successive player-of-the-month awards at Sochaux.
Sochaux, who beat Clermont on Saturday, have 27 points, five behind leaders Dijon.
