Jesse Were signs new contract with Zesco United

Kenyan international striker Jesse Were has extended his contract with Zambian club Zesco United for another two years.

The club confirmed this development through their official Facebook page on Friday.

Were’s initial contract at Zesco was set to expire in December 2017, but now, his employer has moved fast to avoid the reliable striker leaving for nothing at the end of the campaign.

Earlier this month, Zesco allowed Were’s strike partner Idriss Mbombo to leave for Saudi Arabia in a reported Sh25 million deal and replaced him with Uganda forward David Isabirye.

Were’s extended stay at the Ndola based club also puts to rest speculation linking him with moves to North and South Africa.

The 27-year-old has been the club’s top scorer in his last two years.

Zesco, who are competing in the Caf Confederation Cup this season, will be relaying on Were’s form in their bid to reclaim the league title from Zanaco, as well as retaining the domestic cup title.
