Northern region TNM super league side Karonga United has acquired the services of Nigerian defender Adeleke Kalawole from an academy side in the west African country to beef up their squad as they await kick off of the 2020 season which was delayed by the coronavirus.
General secretary for Karonga United Ramzy Simwaka confirmed the player has signed a year long loan deal with the club after impressing them during his one month trials with the club.
“The player has been doing trials with us for a month and has impressed our technical panel to an extent they recommended that he be part of the squad in the forth coming season which made us open up negotiations with his agent until we agreed to a year loan move,” Simwaka said.
The club has gone for a loan move as foreign based player’s demands are high with the example of former Masters Security and Be Forward Wanderers striker Babatunde Adepoju and have agreed with Kalawola’s manager to do a few things for the player as part of the soft loan move.
Karonga united has lost Mischeck Selemani to TNM super league champions Nyasa Big Bullets and other players have gone to join other super league clubs like Moyale Barracks.
The super league has in it’s books a number of Nigerian players who have played for different clubs such as Babatunde Adepoju, Friday Osagie and Amosi Bello.
