Malawi Women’s National Football Team midfielder Madyina Ngulube Wednesday left for Lusaka, Zambia, where she is scheduled to sign for Super Division side Lusaka Dynamos on loan from DD Sunshine.

Ngulube left for the neighbouring country through Kamuzu International Airport in Lilongwe and will sign a six-month contract.

Sunshine Chairperson Anthony Msendema said the player has agreed terms with Dynamos.

’’She will join the club on loan until June. We believe she will advance her career in Zambia,’’ Msendema said.

The player said she was excited with the move.

“This is a dream come true for me. I promise to work hard so that I deliver for my new team,” she said.

The deal will see Ngulube becoming the third Malawian woman footballer to play for Dynamos, after defenders Chimwemwe Madise and Patricia Nyirenda, who joined in 2020.

Last year, Madise and Nyirenda wanted to terminate their contracts, accusing the club of failing to fulfil some contractual obligations.

Madise is still with the Zambian club but Nyirenda returned home to join the Malawi Defence Force.

Scorchers goalkeeper Ruth Mhango is also in Zambia where she signed for Zambian Institute for Sustainable Development Women FC on a two-year deal last year.

Meanwhile, winger Wezzie Mvula is on trials at Tanzanian club Fountain Gate Princess Academy.

Scorchers coach Lovemore Fazili said the players have the potential to do well.

’’I am happy for them. This is good for our national team,’’ Fazili said.

Ngulube, Mhango and Mvula are reliable players for Malawi.

National Women’s Football Association Chairperson Suzgo Ngwira described the development as a sign of the growth of the game in the country.

’’We are moving in the right direction. The players are proving their worth and this is a great advertisement for our game,’’ Ngwira said.

Other Malawian stars plying their trade in foreign lands are Fazila Chiyembekezo of Rivers United in Nigeria, Tabitha Chawinga (Inter Milan, Italy, on loan from Chinese side Wuhan Jiangda) and Temwa Chawinga (Wuhan Jiangda).
