RONALD ‘Sate Sate’ Kampamba has returned to Nkana on a five-year contract.
Kampamba was sold to Wadi Degla of Egypt at the end of the 2014 season but payment inconsistencies by the Egyptian side compounded by a long term injury and lack of play time forced the youngster to return to his boyhood club on a one year loan deal last year.
The deal was expected to expire today but Nkana and Degla entered into negotiations to buy the player back on a long term contract and the Egyptians were in agreement.
According to sources at the club, Nkana agreed in principle to pay off the dues that Degla owed the player to effect the transfer.
“They owe him a lot of money in unpaid salaries and other emoluments. So we said instead of starting negotiations on transfer fees, let’s pay him on their behalf because we are talking about huge amounts here, so they agreed, the player agreed so it’s done deal, he is back,” said the source.
And Nkana president Everisto Kabila also confirmed the development yesterday.
“It’s done, he has signed a five-year contract, he is now our player,” said Kabila.
