By Williams Gondwa:
Unsettled Be Forward Wanderers striker Peter Wadabwa is close to joining Mozambican side Desportivo de Maputo.
Wadabwa is among the players earmarked for the chop at Wanderers due to his drop in form and high wage demands.
The former Silver Strikers net buster is reported to have sneaked out of the country last Tuesday to attend trials in the Mozambican capital, where he impressed.
Speaking in an interview from Maputo, Wadabwa said discussions with Desportivo are at an advanced stage and he expects to be given a contract.
“It is true that I am here in Mozambique. As you are aware, my club [Wanderers] has indicated that I am no longer in its plans following the expiry of my contract. So I decided to come here and try my luck. All is going well with me and I am sure that, by Friday [today], I will sign a contract. “But I do not want to talk much about this. Let us wait until I finalise everything. And let me take this opportunity to thank the Wanderers family for the time we had together. I wish them all the best in the 2019 season,” Wadabwa said.
If the former Flames striker signs for Desportivo, he will team up with goalkeeper Simplex Nthala, who joined the club last year.
Wadabwa would increase the number of Malawian players plying their trade in the neighbouring country.
Other players are Charles Swini, Frank and John Banda, Richard Mbulu and Chawanangwa Kaonga.
