Flames midfielder Robert Ng’ambi has agreed a new deal to extend his stay at South African side Platinum Stars.
Ng’ambi is one of the players from Stars who have been heavily linked with an exit at the end of the season as Kaizer Chiefs and Mamelodi Sundowns were reportedly interested in his signature.
His previous deal had been due to expire at the end of next season but Dikwena head coach Cavin Johnson says the player has decided to stay at the club for a few more years.
Johnson confirmed to one of South Africa’s media houses that a deal has been agreed and the Flames midfielder will sign a new contract at the club.
“What I like about Robert is that we are up-front with each other and whether he wants to go or doesn’t want to go, it doesn’t matter. It’s football and these things happen.
“We know he’s going to sign a new contract and we have agreed on that. And if things change in football you guys [the media] will be the first to know,” said Johnson.
The Malawian international has been influential during Stars’ success of recent seasons, which includes the MTN8 and Telkom Knockout trophies which they won in the 2013/14 season.
