Zambian club Nkwazi FC claims that their player Lameck Banda, who is attending trials at Mamelodi Sundowns, has been targeted by dodgy agents.

Nkwazi allowed the Under-17 international to trial with Sundowns at the start of October.

Nkwazi general secretary Davy Chimbwelenge, however, is not happy about the attention the player has been receiving from some SA agents.

“What happened is that the boy is under too much pressure,” Chimbwelenge was quoted as saying in the Zambian media.

“There were attempts by some agents from other countries who were trying to use underhand methods, including local agents.

“They wanted to sneak the boy out of the country,” added Chimbwelenge.

If he signs for Sundowns, Banda will be second player from Nkwazi to join an Absa Premiership side this season after Orlando Pirates signed Justin Shonga last month.
