Calabar has been one of the most outstanding players for both club and country over the past four seasons.

At Zesco, his consistent displays has helped “Timu Ya Ziko” claim the league and domestic cup honours, plus get to the semi-finals of the CAF Champions League in 2016, where he was voted in the team of the season.

At a personal level, he has been voted the club’s most disciplined player, fans player of the year and also handed the Chairman’s award for his exemplary perfomances.

The 27 year-old had earlier this year attracted interest from South African club Golden Arrows, Sudan’s Al-Ahly and Sweden’s Djurgurdens.
