Tanzanian Simba SC player, Haruna Moshi Not For Sale

Majuto Omary
Haruna Moshi is simply not for sale, so says the chairman of the Simba SC players registration committee, Evans Aveva.

Aveva has refuted media reports that Moshi is to join a club in Oman, insisting that the club is not aware of the transfer plans."If Moshi is to join any club overseas the necessary communication has not yet been brought to our knowledge," said Aveva.

Simba officials have at various instances questioned Moshi as to media reports saying he would seek such transfer but the player had denied the story, he said.

Moshi has assured club officials that he will remain with the club and feature for the team during the forthcoming domestic premier league and the Confederations of African Football champions league matches.

"Moshi is not for sale and is not joining any team in the Arab world soon," reacted Aveva. If there is a transfer move for Moshi or any other Simba player there must be official communication before any contract is made, he said.

"Whoever is in need of Moshi should meet officials of the club especially chairman Hassan Dalali, not going through the back door," he further stated.

He said the present situation at the club does not require the club to sell a player as major championships are just around the corner.

Champions Simba are scheduled to clash against Ethiopian club Awasa in the first leg first round match of the CAF Champions League mid next month.

Reports that Moshi was on his way to play professional soccer with an Oman club spread in the newspapers recently. Simba have been practising for the two assignments and play trial matches.

In their last trial match Simba defeated visiting Mtibwa Sugar by a lone goal at the National Stadium on Tuesday.Former Simba striker Athuman Machupa, along with Henry Joseph and Eric Majaliwa are on their way to Spain for trials.

They are hopeful they may eventually win a contract with league sides in the UEFA zone f they succeed.The trio leave on January 20 with FIFA approved agent Mehd Rhemtullah.
