According to The Lusaka Times, the teams have submitted their offers for the striker that was instrumental in securing Chipolopolo’s qualification for 2018 Chan.

“I am still looking at those offers. I am yet to make a decision,” Shonga is quoted as saying by the Zambian newspaper.

Asked if whether he would make the move to South Africa or if he would wait to represent Zambia in the Chan tournament, Shonga said: “I cannot say anything on that.”

Shonga scored twice as Zambia beat South Africa 2-0 in Ndola on Saturday in the return match of the final qualifying round to qualify 4-2 on aggregate.

“We really wanted to qualify. We had to push hard. If we prepare well, we will do better [at the Chan finals],” commented Shonga.
