Ghanaian Michael Sarpong is on the verge of signing for Tanzanian side Simba Sc after he fell out with Rwanda Premier League side Rayon Sports over payment row.
The Rwandan side had sacked the 24-year-old in April over comments he made about the embattled club president Sadate Munyakazi but they later tried to re-sign him after losing the race to Togolesestriker Alex Nyarko.
Sarpong was quoted by Rwandan press as saying that he had met and held talks with Simba SC officials and they are working on details of the contracts.
“We have an agreement in place and everything seems to be going smoothly, hopefully the deal can be sealed in the near future. The contract is being worked on between my agent and Simba,” said Sarpong.
“There are just a few minor details we are yet to agree on.”
Sarpong has been enormous for Rayon Sports in domestic football
Sarpong has been one of the most prolific strikers in domestic football since joining Rayon in September 2018. He was the club’s top-scorer with 16 goals, and second in the league, as the Blues clinched their 2018-19 Rwanda Premier League title.
Earlier this year, Sarpong went for trials with China League One outfit Changchun Yatai FC but he could not complete the move as the club signed Nigerian Aaron Olanare instead
