Buildcon snap up Shamujompa under the nose of Power Dynamos
Zambia defender Isaac Shamujompa is set to complete his move from Nchanga Rangers to Ndola side Buildcon.
He will join the club next season.
After a protracted transfer saga which involved five clubs; Intersport, Kalulushi Modern Stars, Power Dynamos, Buildcon and Nchanga Rangers – the 23 year old defender’s future has been sorted.
Last week, a judgement delivered by magistrate David Simusamba of the FAZ disciplinary committee ruled that the Kapiri Mposhi native is a Nchanga Rangers players and this brought a scramble for the player’s signature.
The player made it clear that he didn’t want to return to Chingola while the 1998 league winners slapped over K800, 000 transfer fee.
Big spenders duo Buildcon and Lusaka Dynamos both registered their interest while Power Dynamos had the advantage as Shamujompa is ‘on their books’ with a temporal clearance.
“Power Dynamos was given first option to buy him but they were unable to meet Nchanga’s asking transfer fee,” a ZamFoot Crew source said.
“Lusaka Dynamos were ready to fly Nchanga officials and the player to the capital city but it seems that Buildcon was already in advanced talks with ‘Brave’.
It will be interesting to see if Shamujompa will continue to feature for Power Dynamos as they continue to chase a top four finish.
On the pitch, his partnership with Billy Mutale at Arthur Davies Stadium was being compared to Nchanga Rangers’ legendary title winning pair of Elijah Tana and Moses Sichone.
Coincidently both Billy and Shamujompa featured for both Kalulushi Modern Stars and Nchanga.
In the league, Shamujompa, Billy Mutale, Fred Musinde of Napsa Stars and Nkana’s John Mwangeni have caught the eye with impressive displays in central defence.
On the international scene, Shamujompa is on the fringes of Chipolopolo as he is behind Ziyo Tembo and Stopilla Sunzu in the pecking order.
