Emmanuel Banda signs for Belgian side
Zambia U20 national team midfielder Emmanuel ‘The maestro’ Banda has signed for Belgiun top flight side KV Oostende from Portguese fourth tier side Esmoriz.
Banda inked a three year deal that will see him remain on the books of Oostende until 2020.
The ZamFoot Crew understands that many clubs were interested in landing the attacking midfielder including FC Porto.
But the 19 year old opted to switch from Portugal to Belgium.
The offer from Oostende came through FIFA Agent Nir Karin who presented the deal to the player and the club and helped with negotiations.
The 19 year old was key in helping the Zambia U20 win the Africa Cup of Nations tournament before making history with his colleagues when they reached the quarter final stage of the world cup.
Oostende last season finished 5th on the Belgian First Division Table.
