DR Congo giants TP Mazembe have completed the signing of 20-year-old striker Joel Beya, who arrives on a five-year deal from local rivals CS Don Bosco.
Beya has been a revelation in the DR Congo championship this season with six goals already and makes a return home, of sorts, after he was developed through the Moses Katumbi Football School.
Katumbi is the owner of TP Mazembe and has recaptured one of the best young performers in the domestic league this campaign.
“It was a childhood dream [to play for TP Mazembe] since my first days at the Moses Katumbi Football School,” Beya told his new club’s website.
“In 2009, I was only 10 years old when I joined the development category of the training centre. I went to cadets and juniors before going to CS Don Bosco. Thanks to the leaders of the club for the trust placed in us young people.”
