Azam im­prove Kangwa of­fer

Chronicle (Zimbabwe) - - Sport - Sikhum­buzo Moyo

AM­BI­TIOUS Tan­za­nian Premier­ship side Azam has im­proved its of­fer for the sig­na­ture of High­landers’ util­ity player Bruce Kangwa ahead of the Vo­da­com League kick-off on Au­gust 20.

Kangwa’s man­ager Ge­orge Deda said the Tan­za­ni­ans had added $5,000 to the ini­tial $25,000 of­fer they made to the Bu­l­awayo gi­ants for Kangwa’s sig­na­ture.

Bosso ini­tially priced Kangwa at $50,000, but are be­lieved to have climbed down to $40,000. How­ever, the Tan­za­ni­ans be­lieve this is still too high for a player whose con­tract ends in De­cem­ber.

“I’m happy to say that we seem to be reach­ing an agree­ment. We’re get­ting some­where in our ne­go­ti­a­tions. I hope both par­ties see the ur­gency in con­clud­ing these talks be­cause the Tan­za­nian win­dow will be clos­ing soon, some­thing which will heav­ily prej­u­dice the player,” said Deda.

The player is also be­lieved to be keen on join­ing the Tan­za­ni­ans as the deal is lu­cra­tive to him. His sign­ing on fees has been pegged at $20,000 plus a monthly salary of $5,000 and a win­ning bonus of $500.

“I’m hop­ing he plays a farewell game for High­landers be­fore he leaves. It’s only proper that way, but we need to grind out an agree­ment,” said Deda.

High­landers, drown­ing in debt, need to avoid a sim­i­lar sit­u­a­tion that saw Mil­ton Ncube and Peter Moyo leav­ing as free agents two months af­ter the club had turned down a $60,000 of­fer from AmaZulu. — @skhu­moyo2000
