Tanzania club Simba SC are on the verge of acquiring the services of Ghanaian forward Michael Sarpong after negotiations between the striker and Rayon sports fell through.
Rayon Sports were believed to have been keen on re-signing the Ghanaian after terminating his contract in April, but the former have now decided to end their interest in the Ghanaian after signing Togolese forward Alex Harlley Nyarko.
Sarpong was sacked by the Kigali-based club after it emerged the player had protested the club’s decision to suspend player’s salaries for three months and apparently disrespecting the club President Sadate Munyakazi.
Speaking to Rwandan-based news publication The New Times, Sarpong revealed that his agent and Simba SC are in talks to finalize a deal which would to see him move to the Tanzanian club.
“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 whose 16 goals helped Rayon Sports to the 2018/2019 league title believes that his qualities will be very significant to Simba’s success.
“I believe in my craft and the ability to succeed anywhere,” he said. “If I sign for Simba, I will make sure to give my best for the club’s success. All I require is a good working environment.”
