Stopilla Sunzu has headed to England to attend a medical and agree terms with Reading.
TP Mazembe confirmed on their official website that Sunzu will be away for at least four days.
“Indeed, Sunzu is in Reading for tests after an agreement between TP Mazembe and the Zambia Federation,” Mazembe president Moses Katumbi said.
Sunzu did not travel with the team to Nelspruit on Sunday from Ndola and went straight to England after Zambia’s 0-0 friendly game against Norway on December 12 at Levy Mwanawasa Stadium.
The defender is due to rejoin the Zambia team in Nelspruit on January 19, just two days before th African champions opening Group C match against Ethiopia at Mbombela Stadium.
