Cape Town - Newly signed Orlando Pirates forward Augustine Mulenga reportedly cost over R4 million when he was bought from Zambia's Zanaco in the January transfer window.
The 28-year-old comes with a big reputation as he is the reigning Zambian Footballer of the Year and recently scored three goals for the Copper Bullets in the African Nations Championship in Morocco.
Recently, Bucs coach Milutin Sredojevic hailed the arrival of the talented star, saying: "South Africa loves football in a special way and his arrival as the best player from Zambia at present is an asset to our football‚ an asset to us as a team. And we are looking that he will add value to the team."
The player signed a three-year deal at Mayfair although it has since been revealed that Pirates had to pay a substantial fee to land Mulenga's services.
According to the Soccer Laduma website, the Buccaneers tabled a R4m offer to steer off bids from African giants Wydad Casablanca, Zamalek and Al Ahly.
The Chipolopolo international is yet to make his debut for the club yet he could do so against Ajax Cape Town in the Nedbank Round of 32 tie on Saturday.
Kick-off is at 20:15.
