John ‘CJ’ Banda gets outright deal in South Africa


South Africa’s National First Division side, TS Sporting, has offered Malawi national football team stand-in Captain John ‘CJ’ Banda an outright deal in a bid to lure him from Mozambican giants UD Songo.

Banda joined Songo on a season-long deal after three years with Ferraviario de Nampula.

However, Banda’s contract with the Mocambola League defending champions will expire at the end of next month, giving the former Blue Eagles star a chance to join a team of his choice.


Banda said discussions with Eagles and TS were on-going.

“They want me outright, they are discussing with my Malawian club Blue Eagles but Songo are also interested. There are also other teams that want my services. So I just have to cast the net wider before deciding where to go,” he said.

Eagles vice General Secretary, Williams Nkhoma, confirmed the South African club’s interest.


“TS Sporting asked about CJ’s availability and we advised them that they can only sign him for two years. The ball is between CJ and the team to agree on terms but we already gave them the green light,” Nkhoma said.

Sporting could not be reached for a comment Wednesday.

The versatile midfielder moved to Mozambique in 2016 together with striker Schumacher Kuwali who returned home last year due to injuries which affected his performance.

Banda has scored five goals in the Mocambola League this season whereas his elder brother, Frank, has netted four.

The league has several other Malawian players such as Chawanangwa Kaonga, Ndaziona Chatsalira, Mathews Sibale and Charles Swini.
