Lusaka, Zambia, October 28: Zambia international striker, Ronald Sate Sate Kampamba has reportedly secured a yearlong loan deal with Belgium second division league side Lierse SK after undergoing successful trials two weeks ago.
Kampamba has been on three and half contract with Egyptian side, Wadi Delga which he signed early this year after moving from Zambian soccer giants Nkana Football Club.
Kabila told the local daily, The Post, that what wooed Nkana officials to opt for Egyptian club was the provision in the contract that that the player would have an opportunity to play in Belgium at some stage.
“Yes, he had gone to Belgium to be loaned to a club there. We had some correspondence with the Egyptian Club where the team is a sister to the Belgian club.
“Even in his contract signing what made us go for the move was that there were some prospects that he would go to Belgium. The time we were discussing with the club [Wadi Delga FC] he was already in Belgium to be assessed for the loan deal,” he explained.
Although, Maged Samy owns both Lierse SK and Wadi Delga, the Zambian international striker will still belong to the Egyptian side.
“He has just gone there for a loan deal. He still belongs to the Egyptian side,” Kabila added.
Lierse SK has sporting contract with English premiership side, Arsenal Football Club.
According to media reports from Zambia, the 21 year-old striker one year long loan spell in Belgium is expected to get into effect on December 1.
The media reports further said Kampamba who plays for both senior and the under-23 national team sides will be crucial in the Lierse SK FC bid to earn promotion into the first division.
