Red Lions FC captain and Flames midfielder Chikoti Chirwa is scheduled to leave for Mozambique to join Costa do Sol on an outright season-long deal.
According to the official communication from the Mocambola Liga side, the player was supposed to be in Mozambique by January 3, 2023.
However, Red Lions general secretary Francis Chalulu, said the departure of the player has been delayed as the club is waiting for approval from the Malawi Defence Force (MDF) headquarters.
“We wrote a letter to the higher authorities for clearance since he is also a serving soldier in the Malawi Defence Force. Since we were on festive season holidays and just resumed work on Wednesday 4th January, we have the hope that the impending departure by the player will be given a seal of approval, ” he said.
Costa do Sol finished on 7th position with 28 points in the 12-member team league.
This is another opportunity for Chikoti Chirwa who saw his deal with Polokwane City flop in January last year.
