His current local club, Zesco United Media Officer, Katebe Chengo was Friday quoted by the country’s online media confirming the development.
Chengo also disclosed that the Indian club has been chasing the signature of the Zambia international from April this year, after it got wind of his brilliant performance both at his local club and the national team.
“Our team vice-captain, Kondwani Mtonga is set to join Indian side Shilong [Lajong] on a six month loan after the negotiations that started in April,” she said.
The 29 year-old, holding midfielder had a sterling performance last season and clinched his club (Zesco United) player of the year award.
During last summer, he was linked with a possible move to a French Ligue 1 side Sochaux after the club showed interest to get his services but the deal did not see the light of the day.
Mtonga kicked off his serious soccer career in 2003 with Zambia Telecommunication sponsored club, Zamtel Football Club in Ndola and ten years later he made it into his country national team.
Lately he has been a regular feature of national team for which he has played 19 competitive games.
His prospective Indian club finished on sixth spot of the thirteen team league during 2013/2014 season.
