Juba Super Star and captain of South Sudan’s Women’s National Team Amy Lasu's arrival date to Liberia for the completion of her move to Liberian champions Determine Girls has been pushed to August due to the international transfer window.

Both Determine Girls and Juba Super Stars in June agreed on the transfer of the 25-year-old attacking midfielder on a one-season deal with an option to extend.

Amy should have arrived in Liberia last month to join her new teammates on camp before their departure for Cape Verde for the WAFU A zonal qualifiers of the CAF Women’s Champions League, according to Determine Girls, the 2020 South Sudan Women’s national league golden boot winner will now have to wait until international transfer window opens on August 8, 2021.

This means, Amy will miss out on the mini qualification tournament in Cape Verde, one of the reasons for which the Liberian champions opted to bring her on board to beef up the squad.

Determine Girls commenced preparation for the tournament on July 5, at SKD Mini-stadium in Paynesville.

The squad received a timely injury boost as right-back Marie Flomo returned to the group after several months out of the squad due to injury.

Four participating teams including Determine Girls (Liberia), AS Mande (Mali) Seven Stars (Cape Verde) and AS Dakar (Senegal), will participate in the week-long qualification tournament which will run from July 24-30, 2021.

It will be played in a round robin (all-play-all) format with the group winners qualifying for the finals in Egypt.

The draw for the tournament will be held on July 23, in Cape Verde.

Eight female clubs on the continent will compete in the finals of the maiden African Women’s Champions League, which is expected to commence in November.
