Outgoing Gor Mahia captain Harun Shakava has finally sealed his move to the Zambian Premier League.
Shakava finally put pen to paper to all but confirm his switch to Nkana FC.
This came just days after Gor Mahia Deputy Secretary General Ronald Ngala confirmed that while the club was in agreement with Shakava on his move to Zambia, he would not be allowed to go for free.
“We are in mutual agreement with Haron Shakava. He requested to be released to pursue his career in a foreign league. But no pen work has been done since he will not go for free because he still has a contract with us”
Said Ronald Ngala.
It is now believed that Nkana FC paid Kogallo 1 Million Shillings for the services of Shakava.
Upon Signing, a happy Shakava could not hide his joy. The former Kakamega Homeboyz man stated that he is out to leave a mark in the Zambian Premier League.
“I am very happy to join Nkana. I was very eager to move here and I am glad all went well. They (Nkana) have a wonderful project that I am glad to be in. My mission is to help the club win the league and also do well continentally,” said Shakava as quoted by Nation Sports.
Shakava also took time to thank Gor Mahia for making him the player he is today.
“I am really thankful to Gor Mahia for entrusting me as a young player from Kakamega Homeboyz and making me the player I am today. The experience I got playing in continental matches and in the Kenyan Premier League are vital. They also made this transfer smooth and I don’t take it for granted,” he added.
Shakava joined Gor Mahia in 2014 from KPL rivals Kakamega Homeboyz and became outstanding with his performances that even saw him handed the captain’s armband.
At Nkana, Shakava will link up with Kenyan duo of Musa Mohamed and Duncan Otieno. The two moved to the Red Devils in 2018 from FK Tirana of Albania and AFC Leopards respectively.
