LEAGUE defending champions Zanaco are on the verge of landing Power Dynamos ‘master’ dribbler Julius Situmbeko.
And Power is in negotiations with Intersport FC of Kabwe for the services of in-form defender Isaac Shamujompa.
Situmbeko, who joined Power from Konkola Mine Police two seasons ago, has fallen out of the perking order at Arthur Davies stadium since veteran coach Dan Kabwe took over.
The attacking midfielder with a bag of tricks when on the pitch is seen as an answer to Zanaco’s limited attacking options by coach Mumamba Numba who released the bulk of the 2016 title winning team.
Sources at Power revealed that Situmbeko, who has not played in Power colours the past two weeks, was just waiting for Zanaco’s return from CAF Champions League duties before joining the team while the two clubs conclude club to club negotiations.
And Power chief executive officer Ricky Mamfunda confirmed that Zanaco has expressed interest in the player but that negotiations had not concluded.
“Yes, our colleagues Zanaco have expressed interest in signing Julius, but we have not concluded anything yet. Obviously our colleagues have been out on continental duties, I am sure they were waiting to return and since this transfer window is short, I am sure they will engage us soon,” Mamfunda said.
He also said his club had written to Intersport expressing interest in Shamujompa who is on loan at Nchanga Rangers and is away with the national team, adding that the club was also looking for a natural striker before the window closes.
“Yes, we have expressed interest but we are yet to finish negotiations, we are looking at these two positions, central defence and natural striker. We may even look beyond the borders of this country,” said Mamfunda.
