“We are very happy to announce we have reached a contract agreement with striker Djodi for another two more seasons,” read the statement from the club obtained by Goal.

“The club was forced to tie down the player after his recent impressive displays in the league, a performance which attracted the eyes of coach Etienne Ndayiragije.”

Speaking on the move, coach Ndayiragije said: “[Djodi] is a good player and when the club agreed to extend his stay, I felt very happy.

“We want to make sure we keep our good players for as long as we can because this great club must continue to fight for titles in Tanzania.”

Djodi signed for Azam from Ashanti Gold of Ghana and has already scored two goals for the Tanzanian side.
