South African side, Jomo Cosmos, have not paid any transfer fee for Malawian attacker, Micium Mhone three months after joining the club from Blue Eagles.
Mhone joined Cosmos on a reported two – year deal and the midfielder purportedly pocketed K7 million signing-on fee and K1.7 million monthly salary.
But it has been discovered that Cosmos are yet to pay any single penny for the player.
When contacted yesterday, Eagles officials refused to comment on the matter but sources close to club confided that the South African side have not paid the transfer fee due to what they believe was logistical problems.
“According to what I have gathered, Cosmos and Eagles agreed that the first payment would be paid as soon as the deal has been concluded. Cosmos were supposed to pay the money through Reserve Bank of South Africa but latest reports indicate that there some hitches that have delayed the payment.
Cosmos local agent, Ben Chiwaya, on Thursday said he was not in a position to comment on the issues of finances of the club.
He, however, said the club officials are busy working on transferring the money.
“I cannot give you more details on the issue. Talk to Cosmos accounts department. I think there is only logistical problem and I am sure the money will be transferred very soon,” Chiwaya insisted.
Eagles sold Mhone to Cosmos at an undisclosed fee. He has already featured for the club in Absa Premiership.
Mhone was an unused substitute when Cosmos held Kaizer Chiefs to a goal-less draw on Tuesday night.
