The January British transfer window closed on Monday night with Chipolopolo striker Emmanuel Mayuka staying at Premier League side Southampton.

It was expected that Southampton would send Mayuka on loan as the player has failed to break into the best 11 since joining the Saints on a five-year deal from Young Boys in August 2012.

Despite scoring 32 goals in two seasons at Young Boys Mayuka has only managed score one goal for Southampton.

The striker spent the 2013-2014 season on loan at French side Sochaux after failing to command a place in the Southampton starting line up in his debut season at the club.

Mayuka does not seem to be in coach Ronald Koeman’s plan.

When releasing the striker early for the 2015 Africa Cup, Koeman said:”Mayuka will go now this weekend because we have more players available in that position.”

Meanwhile, Mayuka scored one of Zambia’s two goals at the AFCON as Chipolopolo exited the tounament without a single win and finished bottom of Group B with two points.

  3. O yes it must be news. Otherwise he shouldn’t even be playing in any team. The boy is a let down. The case of mayuka is a common mentality among Zambians. he has lost interest in football because of money. when Neymar is playing you can see the love of what he is doing.

  4. I had a lot of faith in Mayuka when he was at my boyhood club KWFC and knew he would go far. Far he has gone (at the south coast of England!), but his performance both at the Saints and Chipolopolo leaves much to be desired.

    I watched one game he played for the Saints were his positioning was so poor his playmate could not pass the ball to him…either he was behind a defender or ran far close to the byline he had no chance to score..

    I wish him luck, though

  6. Ni Mayuka wa nyoko for you to insult him? Alteast he has tasted the English and French league and was part of the team that lifted the Africa Cup in 2012 and he has made a bit of money. What about your brothers you silly chaps insulting Mayuka? Do they play soccer or sell mishanga?

  11. Reading most of the posts posted .I can say that most of Zambians luck motivation. You can not motivate anyone if you can not motivate yourself. Hence most of the post says that Mayuka is finished forever.
    Give the boy chance Is just has been there for a short time.
