Ghana player arrives for Nkana trial


Ghanaian midfielder Osman Amiri has arrived at twelve-time Zambia champions Nkana for a two week trial.

Amiri, who has reportedly played for Accra Heart of Oak, has been in the country since the end of last week.


“He is on trial and he has trained with us for two days now. So far what we have seen is impressive but we are still assessing him. I will be able to tell by next week,” Nkana coach Aggrey Chiayngi said.

Amiri is one of three West Africans Nkana have invited for trials during the 2015 international summer transfer window.


The other two are Kondo Aremeyaw from Togo and Nigerian Alpha Yakubu are due to arrive this week.

Nkana currently have one foreign signing on their books in the form of Ugandan midfielder Tony Odur who joined them in July, 2014.

Meanwhile, Nkana are looking to bolster their squad during the July mid-season break following a poor run of results first half of the 2015 FAZ Super League season.


The departure of prolific striker Ronald Kampamba last February to join Egyptian club Wadi Degla has also seen Nkana struggle to fill the shoes of the player who had scored over 40 goals for them over the last three seasons.

Nkana currently sit in 9th position after 13 games played on 17 points, eleven points behind leaders Zanaco.
