Ismail Dunga close to sealing deal with Zambian side Napsa Stars

Globe trotting Kenyan forward Ismail Dunga is on the verge of a switch to top Zambian club Napsa Stars.

Formerly¬†at Tusker in the Kenyan Premier League, Dunga who is nicknamed ‘Manucho’ is said to be finalizing this move with the ‘Pensioners’ who are eager to improve on their seventh-place finish in the 2017 Zambia Premier League season.

“Personal terms have been agreed. What remains is the paperwork and processing of a work permit,” a source privy to the transfer explained.

Dunga relocated to Zambia in June 2017 upon signing a temporary deal with then top tier side City of Lusaka.


However, his stay at the capital side was short-lived with the club finishing last in the league and being relegated to the second tier.

Napsa thus, could be Dunga’s eighth employer in the past five seasons.

During that period, the Kenya international’s nomadic career has seen him first turn out for Mathare United, Tusker and Nakumatt in his homeland.

Thereafter the footballer enjoyed brief stints in at Greek second tier side Archanaikos and later on Bulgarian side Slavia.

He then moved to North Africa for a two-month stint at Moroccan club Raja Benni Mellal, before surfacing in Zambia, home to other Kenyan international Jesse Were, Anthony Akumu, David Owino and Clifton Miheso.
