NAIROBI, July 13 – Harambee Stars forward, Allan Wanga is set to join Tanzania Vodacom Premier League giants, Azam FC.
According the club’s official website, talks are at an advanced to bring the 29-year-old forward to link up with Rwandese side APR midfielder, Jean-Baptiste Mugiraneza who has penned a one-year deal
The Chamazi based side have been tracking Wanga since last year when we scored the winner to help his immediate former club and Sudanese champions, El-Merreikh, lift the Cecafa Kagame Cup last year against APR in the final.
He also found the target against Azam as El-Merriekh knocked them out of the tournament.
Wanga, who was on the verge of joining South Africa’s Premier Soccer League side Bidvest Wits after featuring in a friendly against Ajax Cape Town where he scored, returned home after the deal reportedly fell through due to lack of a work permit.
The striker who declined to renew his one-year deal with El-Merreikh will become the fifth Kenyan to turn out for Azam after defenders, Ibrahim Shikanda and Jockins Atudo, midfielder Humphrey Mieno as well as striker George ‘Blackberry’ Odhiambo..
It will be the fourth foreign club that the former AFC Leopards crowd favourite will play at after stints in Angola’s Petro Atletico, Azerbaijan’s’ FK Baku and Vietnam’s Hoàng Anh Gia Lai.
Head coach Stewart Hall who is seeking to reclaim the title in the 2015-16 season after finishing second to champions Young Africans will bring his signings to four if the Wanga deal is completed.
