Striker Rupia closing in on Power Dynamos move

Nzoia Sugar striker Elvis Rupia is edging closer to the exit door.

Nairobi News understands representatives attached to top Zambian club Power Dynamos arrived in the the country on Saturday to thrash out finer details of the move.

The Zambian contingent, which includes Dynamos team manager Lombe Chipupu, is slated for talks with officials of Nzoia Sugar club who are demanding a Sh1.5 million transfer fee.


Rupia is meanwhile reported to have asked for a Sh250,000 monthly salary among other allowances.

Dynamos, who are currently placed seventh on the Zambian league standings, are said to rate Rupia so highly that they are seeking him as replacement OF their top striker Alex Ngonga who is closing in on a move to South African club Baroka FC.

Sources suggest that a deal between Dynamos and Rupia has been on the cards for sometime now and was only delayed to allowthe player process his travel documents with the immigration offices in Kisumu.


In between, the 22-year old is said to have rejected other offers from AFC Leopards and Rwandan champions Rayon Sport.

Should Rupia complete the move, he will join Kenyan stars who are currently playing their trade in Zambia. They include Kenya internationals Jesse Were, David Owino, Anthony Akumu, Musa Mohammed, Clifton Miheso and John Mark Makwatta.
