Nigerian duo to join Zesco United

Dennis Nya and Wasiu Jimoh, both Nigerians, are on the verge of joining Zambia Premier League club Zesco United.

According to sources, Jimoh, who is joining Zesco United from Nigeria Professional Football League team Kwara United, came in Lusaka on Tuesday to sign his contract.

This season, he scored three goals in four CAF Confederation Cup games for Kwara United.

Nya, an Akwa United center defender, is expected in Lusaka on Wednesday.

The 26-year-old midfielder was a member of Nigeria’s U-17 team that won the world championship in the United Arab Emirates in 2013.

He replaces Sudanese defender Peter Manyang, who was released by the club.
