Juma Kaseja is hours away from rejoining Simba SC, who have reportedly tabled a lucrative and record shattering deal to lure him back from archrivals Young Africans.According to a club source who spoke to Tanzanian newspaper Daily News, Simba are poised to snatch Juma Kaseja from Young Africans.
The source would not reveal the exact amount Simba had offered Kaseja, but he pointed out that it was worth more than the country’s record Tsh 35m (£20,000) that Simba’s archrivals dished out last year to land his signature.
“Kaseja will put pen to paper any time now after protracted talks with the club’s registration committee,” said the source, who also revealed that Simba had concluded a deal with Taifa Stars and Ruvu JKT’s talented midfielder Mwinyi Kazimoto.
Reports indicate that Simba have set aside about Tsh 40m (£22,000) to ensure the eagle-eyed shot stopper once again dons again the red and white colours of the Msimbazi Street Club.
When reached for comment, Kaseja was unwilling to confirm the move but admitted that he held talks with a member of the club’s registration committee assigned to recruit him.
The committee member is said to have also promised Kaseja a bigger salary than the Tsh 1m (£600) a month he receives at Yanga. Kaseja crossed over to Yanga in a one-year deal last year and helped them retain the Premier League title.
However, the champions are said not to be keen enough to retain his services.
