Mayuka transfer listed by Zamalek
Mayuka and nine others are set to leave the Cairo giants at the end of the season.
Zamalek were eliminated from the CAF Champions League group stage after finishing third behind USM Alger of Algeria and Libyan side Al Ahli Tripoli.
USM Alger and Al Ahli Tripoli advanced to the quarter-finals.
Club chairman Mortada Mansour said: “A lot of players don’t deserve to wear Zamalek’s shirt. I think 10 players will leave the team this summer.”
According to Kingfut.com, Mansour said he is the one who rates players.
He said a number of players were performing below par.
Defender Eslam Gamal, midfielder Mostafa Fathi, strikers Ahmed Gafaar, Stanley Ohawuchi and Ali Fathi are other players that have been released.
Mayuka moved to the White Knights in January 2016 on a permanent deal from French Ligue 2 club Metz, penning a three and a half-year deal.
He joined Metz in 2015 from English Premiership outfit Southampton, where he spent three seasons but failed to impress.
Mayuka’s deal with Zamalek was scheduled to expire in 2019.
He has had stints with French outfit Sochaux, Swiss side Young Boys and Israeli outfit Maccabi Tel-Aviv.
In January this year, Zamalek fined Mayuka US$50,000 (about K500,000) for being absent without official leave.
Mayuka was part of the national team that won the Africa Cup of Nations in 2012 finishing as joint top scorer with three goals alongside compatriot Christopher Katongo and Ivory Coast forward Didier Drogba.
