Red-hot Highlanders FC winger Bruce Kangwa is in the country for a two-week trial stint with Azam FC.

The Chamazi moneybags are reported to have agreed in principle with Highlanders over the transfer of the player, a move which is subject to Kangwa passing medicals.

The 27-year-old arrived in Dar es Salaam on Tuesday evening with the deal expected to be formalised in the coming days as was confirmed by his agent George Deda.

"Azam have expressed their interest in signing Kagwa and Highlanders have given him the green light to engage and once everything is done including the medicals the deal shall be formalised in the course of the week," Deda said.

Speaking after his arrival, Kangwa exuded confidence that he will successfully pass the trials and switch to the 2015 Kagame Cup champions.

"I am happy that Azam are interested in signing me. The club has given me a chance for trials and I am here to show what I am capable of," said Kangwa who leads the Zimbabwean league scoring chart with seven goals going into the mid-season break.

"I am well prepared for the trials and I am confident that I will impress the coaches."

His agent disclosed that monetary negotiations ranged from $15 000 (about Sh32 million) to $25 000 (Sh54m) as signing on fees per season.

The club is also offering a salary of between $3,000 (Sh6.5m) and $5 000 (S0m), $500 (Sm) as winning bonus and a match day allowance.

The versatile Highlanders utility man has underlined his growing stock in the domestic league, capping a blistering start to the season by being named the Castle Lager Premier Soccer League's best player for the last three successive months.

Kangwa, speaking on Tuesday night, attributed his success to his teammates, Highlanders supporters and his family.

"I am elated by the recognition which the PSL has shown me. It is good to do what one loves doing and in the process get recognised for that.

"I would like to thank my coach, teammates, fans and my family as it is their combined efforts which spur me on. I salute them," Kangwa said ahead of busy session under Azam's Spanish coach Zeben Hernandez.
