Kazakhstani womens league side’ Biik Kazygurt have completed the signing of Zambia national soccer team women’s midfielder Misozi Zulu on a six-month loan deal.
Zulu who captains the national women’s team joined the Kazakhstani Women’s Championship side from Zambian League outfit National Assembly, where she established herself locally.
The Shepolopolo midfielder missed out on the 2018 African Women’s Cup of Nations in Ghana due to injury, but she will now get the chance to test herself for the first time as a professional abroad with the Shymkent-based club.
Zulu, 24, becomes the Kazygurt’s third first-team signing from Africa this season, after the arrival of Nigeria’s Charity Reuben and Zambia’s Racheal Kundananji.
The midfielder adds to Kazakhstani league queens’ options in the midfield as they prepare for their 2019-20 UEFA Women’s Champions League campaign.
Zulu could make her Champions League debut for the club when they get their campaign underway against EB/Streymur/Skála in Tallinn.
The development means she, alongside Kundananji, will not be part of Zambia’s campaign at the 2019 Cosafa Women’s Cup in August.
