Isaac Chansa has rejoined Zanaco, seven months after he had left the MTN FAZ Super League champions to join Iraq outfit Zakho Football Club.

His stay in Iraq did not last long and he later joined South African National First Division outfit Royal Eagles Football Club on a six-month deal.

Chansa, 33, helped Zanaco to their title last season by scoring eight league goals and also contributed a goal in the Barclays Cup competition in which they finished as runners-up.

While he completed the entire season last term, Chansa’s previous spells with Zanaco, between 2014 and 2015, saw him switch to the Indian League midway through the respective seasons before returning later.

Chansa is one of three players who have been signed by Zanaco in the July transfer window, the other two being Julius Situmbeko from Power Dynamos and Congolese striker Heritier Nkonko from Lubumbashi Stars.

Other players linked with Zanaco are Ghanaian Benard Ofori, Burkina Faso international Romaric Pitroipa and Rodger Kola.

Ofori is said to have agreed a two year deal from Ghanaian Premier League side Medeama SC but his registration is subject to his International Transfer Certificate (ITC) arriving in time while Pitroipa has signed a pre-contract agreement, allowing him to see off his running contract with Coton Sport until the end of the Cameroonian league season in October.

Zambian forward Rodger Kola has been training with Zanaco since March following a spell with Israeli outfit Hapoel Raanana.
