Sunzu skips training for Reading medical



Zambia centre-back Stopilla Sunzu has taken a temporary break from training for the 2013 Africa Cup of Nations to undergo a pre-transfer medical at English Premier League club Reading.

Sunzu plays for TP Mazembe in the Democratic Republic of Congo and the club said on its website that a three-million-pound (3.6 million euros/$4.8 million) deal had been agreed pending the successful completion of formalities.

Scorer of the winning penalty when Zambia shocked Ivory Coast 8-7 in a shootout to win the 2012 Africa Cup, Sunzu is due in South Africa on January 19, two days before the defending champions face Ethiopia in the opening round.

He was outstanding when the Chipolopolo (Copper Bullets) were held 0-0 at home by Norway last Saturday to complete a winless five-match build-up to the Cup of Nations.
