Nizar Khalfan is currently a Yanga FC midfielder. He played with success in about last 7 years of his carrier. he started to be known when he played for Mtibwa Sugar FC. at times he was able to move outside Tanzania to look for more success and exposure. He has played in some teams in Kuwait before going to America where he joined the Canadian side Vancouver White Caps FC. After staying for some time(estimated to be less than 2 years) he returned home and joined Yanga FC.

Being a very good player, he is facing a serious challenge of getting regular appearances in the team. At times he was facing serious and frequent injuries. He has been continuously being out of the 1st 18 players. He is just underutilized. With the presence of some new players life for him is not easy at Yanga FC. He should probably try to find another team where he can get time to play and show his talent.
