Green Buffaloes defender and captain Adrian Chama has joined Zesco United.
The Chipolopolo CHAN team captain has joined the defending FAZ Super Division champions on loan for the 2019/2020 season.
Chama reported for training in Ndola on Monday in what so far is the 2019/2020 season’s biggest surprise deals.
However, Chama is only eligible for continental action if Zesco reach the group stage.
Meanwhile, Zesco are sweating on the fitness of key striker Jesse Were ahead of Saturday’s CAF Champions League preliminary round, final leg match against Black Mamba on August 24 at Levy Mwanawasa Stadium in Ndola.
Zesco head into the final leg leading 2-0 from the first leg played in eSwatini on August 10.
Were sustained an injury last Saturday in Zesco’s 1-0 loss to Zanaco in the Charity Shield final at Woodlands Stadium in Lusaka.
The striker, who limped off in the 70th minute and was replaced by new signing Saviour Nkonkola, missed Tuesday training due to the knock.
Midfielders Anthony Akumu and Enock Sabamukumana also sat out training as they continue their rehabilitation from their respective two month injury spell’s.
