AFC Leopards Burundian midfielder Floribert Tambwe Nyayisaba departs for Oman on Wednesday where he his scheduled to undergo trials with top club Al Nasr.
Ndayisaba confirmed to Goal.com that he would be jetting out at 1pm (Kenyan time) accompanied by teammate Allan Wanga, who is equally set to tie a deal with the club.
“It is true we are flying out together with Allan (Wanga). I do not know what period the trials could take, but I will keep you posted while there.”
Earlier last week, the Burundian exclusively revealed to Goal.com that he would be jetting out any time soon to pursue greener pastures in the Gulf. “Just know that I will be jumping onto the next plane any time soon. I have a club in the Middle East which has shown interest.”
The much traveled Wanga, who has been on loan at AFC Leopards from parent club Hoang Ann Gia Lai in Vietnam, had also confirmed his intended move to Oman to Goal.com.
“It is true (the impending move). I have been in contact with Al Nasr. We have virtually agreed everything so I am awaiting the official letter of invitation and visa. Its 90 percent (done deal)," Wanga, who's contract with the Vietnam side has now expired, revealed.
Both Wanga and Ndayisaba had already been included in AFC Leopards’ 25-man squad for the 2013 campaign. AFC Leopards vice-chairman wished the duo well. “We know they (Ndayisaba and Wanga) are departing for Oman for trials and if they make it…then replacements will be done as soon as possible.”
Should the deals materialize, it will be the third time Wanga and Ndayisaba will be featuring for the same team. The two played alongside each other at Azerbaijan side FC Baku in the 2009-2010 seasons before linking up again at Ingwe last season.
Al-Nasr is known for producing great players that have eventually made it to international level such as Wigan Athletic goalkeeper Ali Al-Habsi. The club has won the Oman premiership five times - 1980, 1981, 1989, 1998 and 2004.
