Tanzanian top-flight league side Simba SC has terminated Malawian midfielder Duncan Nyoni’s contract for poor performance.
The 23-year-old on-and-off Flames midfielder penned a three-year contract with the Dar es Salaam-based side in August this year from Silver Strikers FC.
A source said the player was informed about the termination on Monday evening.
“The thing is that Simba now have a new coach and Nyoni is one of the players who is not on his plans,” said the source.
One of Silver’s board members Mayamiko Mwinjiro, who facilitated the player’s move, also confirmed the development in an interview yesterday.
He said: “It’s true. Termination of contract has not yet been finalised. Simba and Duncan’s agent are working on an amicable agreement.”
Simba and the Central Bankers reportedly agreed a K49 million transfer fee and the Tanzanian club paid part of the fee on the understanding that the remainder would be paid in 2022.
On the implications of the termination on payment of the balance, Silver chief executive officer Thoko Chimbali said: “We are yet to get formal communication from Simba about Nyoni.
“Once we are communicated, we will map the way forward as regards the signed sale agreement.”
Nyoni was repordely getting about $4 000 (about K3.3 million) as monthly salary.
Another Malawian player Peter Banda also plays for Simba.
