Deposed Mozambique champions, Uniao Disportiva Songo, have signed Blue Eagles striker Schumacher Kuwali on a year-long contract.
The forward is expected to join Songo in the next international transfer window next month at the end of the TNM Super League season and Mocambola League.
Eagles Chairperson, Alexander Ngwala, said the one-year deal was subject to extension.
“We wish him well and we believe he has taken a big step in his football career. He is a very good player who can play for any team. His work ethics are also good,” he said.
The versatile attacker, whose skills include dribbling and scoring, has netted eight goals in the Super League this season.
He also helped Eagles to reach the Fisd Challenge Cup final after scoring four goals and they meet Kamuzu Barracks.
Kuwali said he was happy to have secured a return to Mozambique where he spent some seasons playing for Ferroviaro de Nampula.
“Everything was concluded and I am joining Songo in January. I would like to thank management of Eagles for allowing me to join the team in Mozambique,” he said.
Kuwali is mostly overlooked by Flames coach but the striker has always been patient saying his time would come.
He joins at Songo compatriots, midfielders Frank and John (CJ) Banda and goalkeeper Charles Swini.
However, CJ has since attracted interest from South African National First Division side TS Sporting FC.
Mocambola League is the home of other Malawian players such Chawanangwa Kawonga and Mathews Sibale (Costa do Sol) and Ndaziona Chatsalira (Nampula). Moses Chavula also plays for a Mozambican team.
