A Zambian striker is likely to conclude a PSL deal during the next transfer window in January, after impressing his suitors with his performances for his current club.
Tapson Kaseba, who is currently on the books of Green Eagles FC in Zambian Super League, looks set to conclude a deal with Free State Stars.
As confirmed to the Siya crew by a source in the know, the striker has impressed Ea Lla Koto on his trial with the team during the FIFA international break.
“Tapson Kaseba is the name of the player and he is likely to play for Free State Stars this season. In (Stars’) failure to sign (Idris) Mbombo, Free State Stars have agreed in principle with the boy (Kaseba) on a pre-contract. He went to Zambia to sort out his paperwork. Some people in Zambia have already wished him well for his Mzansi journey,” said the source.
Kaseba finished the Zambian league in third place on the goalscorers’ charts. He helped his team qualify for their maiden CAF Confederation Cup appearance.
Kaseba is likely to follow in the footsteps of Orlando Pirates’ Justin Shonga and Augustine Mulenga, among other Zambian players who have recently earned deals in the PSL. Should the move be completed, the attacker could emulate Mamelodi Sundowns’ Kennedy Mweene, who also joined the Bethlehem outfit straight from Zambia.
