Simba Sports Club has compensated Malawian attacking midfielder Duncan Nyoni with an undisclosed amount after terminating his three-year contract.
The Tanzanian giants officially parted ways with Nyoni just six months into the contract due to what they called poor performance.
Reports suggest that Nyoni was getting about K3 million as a monthly salary at Simba.
With 30 months remaining on his contract, the former Silver Strikers star could have pocketed over K90 million based on the salary.
Silver Strikers board member Mayamiko Mwinjiro, who facilitated the deal, said Nyoni had been duly compensated following contract termination.
“The two parties reached an agreement over the termination of the contract. Nyoni’s stay at Simba has been a short one but financially he is good. Actually, he got a good package that some local players would not see for their entire careers,” Mwinjiro said.
He ruled out the possibility of securing Nyoni another deal with a foreign club during the ongoing international transfer window.
“Finding Nyoni another foreign club would be a bonus. What is pleasing for now is that the player is in the right frame of mind and is not devastated. He wants to prove a point as he returns home,” Mwinjiro said.
Nyoni is likely to return to Silver ahead of the new season which kicks off next month.
The Central Bankers’ Chief Executive Officer Thokozani Chimbali said Nyoni was welcome to rejoin the team as he was still a good player.
At Silver, he is expected to compete for a place with promising youngster Zebron Kalima who is currently with the Malawi National Football Team at the Africa Cup of Nations finals in Cameroon.
The midfielder started his Simba career on a high impressing in a 1-0 win over Dodoma City some three months ago.
However, he was deemed surplus to requirements under coach Pablo Franco.
Nyoni has not been as lucky as his compatriot Peter Banda who continues to enjoy game time under the former Real Madrid assistant coach.
The Tanzania Premier League champions paid K49 million to secure Nyoni’s services from Silver whereas Banda went for K80 million from Nyasa Big Bullets.
