The Football Association Of Zambia (FAZ) have disclosed that they have reached an agreement with goalkeeper Toaster Nsabata and midfielder Augustine Diego Mulenga to play at 2018 CHAN.
Zambia are struggling to hold on to the Zanaco duo who may be ineligible for the CHAN tournament following strong interest from abroad to sign the players.
CHAN is a second tier AFCON exclusively for home-based players.
“Augustine and Toaster are both around and are committed to the team,” FAZ spokesperson Desmond Katongo said.
“Augustine has indicated that whatever will happen will only happen after the tournament and he feels that the final decision will be made after the CHAN.”
The Zanaco midfielder is the subject of interest from a couple of North African clubs.
Nsabata, who is the Zambia CHAN team first choice, is reportedly being tracked by South African National First Division league leaders Highlands Park.
