Blue Eagles have demanded K3.5 million from their want-away midfielder Vitumbiko Kumwenda.
This follows the player’s decision to buy out his contract after the Lilongwe-based Malawi Police Service outfit gave him three options.
Confirming the development in an interview yesterday, Eagles’ chairperson Alexander Ngwala said: “We have finally agreed to let him go to the team that he desires to join and the residual value of K3.5 million has been requested from him to be deposited in the Blue Eagles bank account before issuing a clearance letter.”
Kumwenda, who already signed a three-year contract with Be Forward Wanderers and received K3 million as signing-on fee, yesterday said he will comment on the issue after consulting his manager.
“Give me a bit of time so that I consult with my manager,” he said.
Kumwenda’s contract with Eagles is due for expiry in December.
He was at the hub of the cops’ Fisd Challenge Cup triumph and a top-four finish in the TNM Super League last season
