Evans Kangwa heads to Israel

It has been a busy Wednesday of player’s shuffling at Nkana with two big names leaving led by striker Evans Kangwa.
Kangwa has moved to Israeli club Hapoel Ra’anana on a one-year loan with the option for a permanent move thereafter.
“We are happy with the deal, it is a good deal and we said let him go and try his luck,” Nkana club secretary Ken Mwansa said.
And asked why Nkana decided on the Israeli move rather than another strong offer from south African giants Orlando Pirates, Mwansa said: “Pirates have never come back to us after they pushed in the inquiry and we wrote back to them that they give us an offer they never responded to us.”
Also leaving Nkana is winger Bruce Musakanya whose six-month deal from Red Arrows was not extended after the airmen recalled him to attend a trial at South African club Amazulu.
Meanwhile, striker Festus Mbewe has finally been received his FIFA clearance to play for Nkana following the expiry of his six month loan stint at demoted South African club Golden Arrows.
The news means Festus will play this Saturday in Nkana’s rescheduled home game against Konkola Mine Police.
