Chester’s contract with Wanderers expired in December 2022.
Nthanda Times has established that Chester demanded an MK7.5 million signing on fees to strike a new 3-year deal, an amount the team said it cannot manage, and proposed MK6 million to which the player agreed.
However, the deal went sour as the team suggested paying the MK6 million signing-on fee in three installments starting with MK6 million which the player refused.
Posting on his Facebook page, Chester confirmed that the two parties had agreed to disagree, and mentioned he is now a free agent.
“Good afternoon dear people we all have choices and wishes at the end of the day I had a meeting 30 minutes ago with the team we have failed to agree on the terms and conditions. I am free to join any team here or elsewhere I will forever be grateful for the love n support we shared Thanks a lot God bless you for this you’re my big Family. I Love You so much,” posted Chester.
Confirming the development, Mighty Mukuru Wanderers’ Clement Stambuli said the two parties have agreed to part ways.
“We have mutually agreed not to renew his contract. We are grateful for the contribution he has made to the company when he was our player,” reads a statement from the team.
Chester joined Wanderers in 2017 from Waka Waka Tigers (formerly Azam Tigers) and has been instrumental in the team’s success.
