Deda could not re­veal the fi­nan­cial de­tails of the deal but said both par­ties were sat­is­fied with the state of af­fairs.

“It’s a mu­tu­ally ben­e­fi­cial agree­ment for all the par­ties in­volved. Bosso is happy, Azam is happy and cer­tainly Bruce is happy. I want to thank High­landers for re­leas­ing the boy,” said Deda.
