Sofapaka FC chairman Elly Kalekwa has confirmed that his star striker Fiston Abdul Razak has joined Mamelodi Sundowns from the Kenyan side.

“We run the club as a business entity and for Fiston it was time to leave. The officials from Sundowns came all the way down here with an offer which I thought was good and fair for both parties so I gave him the release letter on Friday.

“I like the way he has carried himself. He’s a real professional and I wish him the best in his future endeavours because I know he is still young with a bright future ahead of him,” Kalekwa told Sunday Nation Sport

Several big African clubs are believed to have been interested in signing the Burundian striker, but Sundowns are said to have offered $250 000 (just over R3 million) for the 23-year-old player, which Sofapaka accepted.

According to the Sunday Nation Sport, Fiston’s former club (Lydia Ludic Burundi Academic) is entitled to 30% of the deal, and Sofapaka will be further entitled to 20% of any proceeds realised from Fiston’s sale to any other club.

Fiston, who scored 8 goals in 11 appearances in all competitions for Sofapaka this season, is said to have signed a three-year deal with Sundowns.
