Wanderers playmaker clinches European deal

Yamikani Chester

Be Forward Wanderers playmaker Yamikani Chester has sealed a deal with Czech Republic’s third tier side MFK Vyskov but he will be loaned out to a United States outfit North Carolina FC.

According to Malawi’s two daily papers, the former Azam Tigers and Bvubwe Research winger was offered an outright three year deal following his impressive season with the Lali Lubani side.

Wanderers Chairman Gift Mkandawire confirmed the development to the local media but he was quick to refuse to shed more details on the transfer fee saying it’s a bit premature.

“I can confirm that we are landing a good future for Chester, having clinched a deal with the Czech side, but the club is further loaning him to North Carolina.”

“He (Chester) is one of our key players, but we could not deny him the opportunity although we need his services,” he was quoted by the two daily local papers.

According to Mkandawire, the winger has already agreed personal terms with the Czech club.

The Nomads chairman further revealed that apart from Chester, other players will be offered similar opportunities soon.

The player will be paid by North Carolina as part of the agreement and he will be provided with other benefits during the specified period.

Chester joined Wanderers from Tigers earlier this year where he was very instrumental in the just ended season.

His goal against Silver Strikers saw Wanderers winning Fisd Cup at Bingu National Stadium.

Chester has also been a key figure in Ronny Van Geneugden’s Flames squad.
