Flames striker Muhammad Sulumba has been given a green-light to join newly promoted South Africa Premier Soccer League (PSL) outfit Jomo Cosmos following fruitful discussions between Blantyre United and Mighty Be Forward Wanderers during a meeting convened by Sulom on Wednesday evening.
There was a cloud of uncertainty over Sulumba’s move to Cosmos following disagreements between United and Wanderers over ownership of the player, but Sulom treasurer Tiya Somba-Banda said.
United administrator Lawson Nakoma expressed excitement with the development, saying Sulom has judged well that his side had the right to recall the player from a loan spell at Wanderers.
“We will abide by the verdict and we will give Wanderers what they deserve after we finally get payment from Cosmos next week,” Nakoma said.
However, while agreeing on the matter, Wanderers general secretary Mike Butao warned that if United do not deal with the matter professionally, the Nomads can go up to Fifa to complain because legally, as per stipulated in the contract, Sulumba, who will leave for South Africa next week, belongs to Wanderers.
