Chipolopopolo Boys captain Stopilla Sunzu has signed for Chinese side Shanghai Shenshua from French Ligue 2 side Sochaux.
And the 25 year old is set to fly straight to South Africa and join his international teammates were they are preparing for African Cup of Nations.
From the transfer deal believed to be worth $3 million, his former club TP Mazembe is also set to benefit as they had a roughly 30-50% in the clause.
The deal has been brokered by his agent Nir Karin from Israel.
Last year, the Chililabombwe born was been touted as one of the best defenders in Africa and his start at Sochaux was proving so as he called 4 goals in his first 13 matches in the second half of the 2013/14 season.
Sunzu has also played for Chateauroux in France while in Zambia, he played for Afrisport, Konkola Blades and Zanaco.
Sunzu joins 34 year old James Chamanga in the Chinese Super League after exactly a year in the France but now it seems the dream of him going to England has ended.
