Speaking in a press conference, the Acting Secretary General of the TFF, Wilfred Kidao said that CAF rules allows for such a move but it must follow the procedures and one of them is agreement between the two clubs.

He added that, they have also received a copy of the letter from Yanga and they are all waiting to see if the move will be agreed before other procudures follow.

“TFF are allowed to give the license for a player any time, so it is very possible for Yanga to use Salamba in the CAF tournament but only if the two teams reach an agreement,” said Kidao.
