Gangling striker Stain Davie has joined Mozambican side ENH from TNM Super League side TN Stars after agreeing a one-year loan deal.
The striker wrote on his Facebook account that he was excited to face the new challenge.
“I am really excited to move to Mozambique and I hope I will have a successful career,” Davie said.
He left the country on Tuesday to join his new teammates in the neighbouring country for an undisclosed fee.
Stars Director Wisdom Chimgwede said the player has moved to Mozambique with the club’s blessings.
“Just to mention that as a young team ourselves, money is not everything but establishing relationships with clubs outside the country will be critical for development of the young players who go through our club. I hope Davie’s move will act as a motivation to the young players he has left behind in Kasungu,” Chimgwede said.
According to Chimgwede, the two clubs are looking for a long-term partnership.
Football Association of Malawi Transfer Matching System Manager Casper Jangale confirmed the move, saying an international transfer certificate had been issued for Davie to ply his trade in Mozambique.
Davie was one of last season’s revelations in the Super League where he scored 13 goals.
His partnership with China Chirwa caused problems to defences in league and cup matches.
Davie and Chirwa helped the club to finish on position nine in its maiden appearance in the top flight league.
Davie has joined compatriot Moses Chavula at the Mozambican side.
Mozambique’s Mocambola League has several Malawian players such as John Banda, Frank Banda, Charles Swini, Matthews Sibale, Chawangwa Kawonga, Richard Mbulu and Simplex Nthala.
Stars survived relegation and finished with 36 points to become eligible for the Airtel Top 8 cup as Nyasa Big Bullets are suspended from taking part.
