In an interview on Monday, Luhanga confirmed that the Flames attacking midfielder would travel to South Africa for trials on Thursday and is expected to be in the Rainbow nation for one week to be assessed by Jomo Cosmos technical Panel.
“Yes, I can confirm that he is going to South Africa on Thursday to undergo trials with Cosmos. As a club, we wish him well and we are confident that he will pass the test,” said Luhanga.
“At the moment, no deal has been agreed between the two clubs but possibly next week, the deal would be finalised.”
When contacted, Mhone also confirmed that he would leave for South Africa on Thursday hoping to clinch a deal with Cosmos.
“I have been waiting for this chance and I will try my best to impress the coaches,” he said in a telephone interview on Tuesday.
Mhone, who turns 22 in July this year, impressed Cosmos hierarchy while with the Flames at the Cosafa Cup in South Africa, where he also won the man-of-the-match award.
However, Cosmos local agent, Ben Chiwaya was not available to confirm the deal yesterday.
If he signs for Cosmos, the hard working midfielder would be the first player from Blue Eagles to play for the club.
Essau Kanyenda, Russel Mwafulirwa, Meke Mwase and Peter Mgangira are some of the Malawian players, that have played for Cosmos before.
At Cosmos, Kanyenda and Mwafulirwa enjoyed their career while Mgangira struggled to establish himself and was released just six months after playing for the club.
