Zambia stint beckons for Akumu


Kenyan international Anthony Teddy Akumu’s next employer could be Zambian champions Zesco United after the club’s management admitted to being interested in the midfielder’s services.

Akumu admitted after the CECAFA Senior Challenge that he will be looking to leave his current club, Al Khartoum ahead of the 2016 season and the Zesco Secretary General Justin Mumba confirmed talks with him have been lined up.

The player is set to travel to Zambia in the near future and Mumba is hopeful that the two parties will reach an agreement.

“Yes, we are interested in signing him; he will be flying here for talks and hopefully we can reach an agreement.

“At the moment we do not know the conditions under which he was working in Sudan but we hope he will agree to our terms and he will like this place,” Mumba told

Should a deal be reached between the two parties, Akumu will join his national team friend David Owino, who also featured with him at Gor Mahia until the 2014 season when Akumu left for Sudan and Owino for Zambia.
