Nomads cross fingers on Joseph Kamwendo
Be Forward Wanderers have said they are yet to get a response from DR Congo football giants, TP Mazembe, over the possible transfer of former Flames captain, Joseph Kamwendo, this season.
Kamwendo, who is also being targeted by Silver Strikers, has been training with the Nomads for two weeks.
The midfielder wants to terminate a contract with Mazembe with who he did not have a successful spell.
He spent last season on loan at another Congolese side, Don Bosco, where he scored thrice in seven appearances, but the nimble-footed midfielder said he wants to re-launch his career back home.
The Nomads’ general secretary, Mike Butao, said the deal had stalled since the club was having problems in communicating with Mazembe’s top management.
“The player agreed personal terms with the club, and we started negotiations with the club. The problem is that we have not yet had feedback because Mazembe’s president is usually busy, and he travels a lot. We called them on Tuesday this week, but they told us that the president is in France. We are just waiting for him to return so that we could get feedback,” he said.
Butao added that the transfer deal was complicated because of Kamwendo’s loan move to Don Bosco.
“It is not as simple since he was already on loan at another club. We hope that the negotiations go well so that we can get the player on board to help us achieve our goals next season,” he said.
That means Kamwendo’s loan deal with Don Bosco has to be terminated before he can move on loan to Wanderers.
The Nomads would then seek an International Transfer Clearance to get the player on board.
Kamwendo has since been recalled to the national team for crucial back-to-back Africa Cup of Nations qualifiers against Guinea next month.
