Ajax want Downs’ Himoonde


The Zambia international joined Sundowns in February this year but was loaned to Zesco United where he spent four months.

With Sundowns having given three of their five foreign spots to Cuthbert Malajila, Mame Niang and Kudakwashe Mahachi, word reaching KickOff.com is that the last two berths will be taken by Khama Billiat and Ejike Uzoenyi.

This has left Himoonde, Rashid Sumaila and Nyasha Mushekwi seeking moves elsewhere. A Downs official says while Sumaila might head to Europe, the club are in talks with the Urban Warriors regarding Himoonde.

“Himoonde might join Ajax because they want him. Rashid’s move to Europe is still on the cards but the problem with Mushekwi is that he has a long lay-off injury.”

KickOff.com called Ajax CEO Ari Efstathiou for comment and his phone went unanswered.
