KITWE – POWER Dynamos have said they have officially begun the process of resolving midfielder Julius Situmbeko’s transfer dispute with Gor Mahia.
The Kenyan champions are threatening action against the Zambia midfielder for misconduct after he signed a two-year deal with them after alleging that he was out of contract with Power.
Situmbeko is alleged to have pocketed a US$6,000 signing on fee but has failed to report to Nairobi.
Power club chairperson Ben Simukoko said it was too soon to state what action they will take over the matter.
“We finally managed to communicate with their general secretary George Bwana on Monday afternoon,” Simukoko said.
“We have asked them to put their claims in writing and that is when we shall state our position on the matter.”
Situmbeko, who still has a running contract with Power, has resumed pre-season training with the Kitwe club on December 20.
“You know it was a deal between the player and the club Gor Mahia,” Simukoko said.
“We have just been hearing this through the media. There has been no official communication from our colleagues so it has been difficult to state our position.
“It is good that Gor Mahia have promised to get back t us before Friday.” Situmbeko joined Power in 2013 on a permanent move from FAZ Division One South club K- Stars. – Supersport
