Tanzania’s most valuable player eventually completed a move to the English Premier League.

The striker, Mbwana Samatta, secured a four-and-half year deal.

In regard to his move to the Claret and Blue Army, Samatta is quoted saying:

“For me, it means a lot. In Tanzania, the people who watch football always watch the Premier League. It will be a moment they’re going to watch one of their own playing in the Premier League for Aston Villa.”

Samatta’s fine form in front of goal since his arrival in KRC Genk from TP Mazembe earned him more admirers across Europe.
