Nigerian striker Babatunde Adepoju Adebare can now afford a smile after Nyasa Big Bullets and Mighty wanderers agreed a K3.5 million fee for the striker, putting to rest the controversy around his move.
Babatunde moved to the red and white side of town after Wanderers not to renew his contract.
However, the Nomads lodged a complaint with Football Association of Malawi (FAM), accusing their rivals of signing the player a day before his contract expired.
Bullets allegedly signed Babatunde before the contract expired on July 4 2021.
Following negotiations between the two clubs brokered by FAM, Bullets have paid K3.5 million for the player.
Both clubs confirmed the development on Thursday and this means the Nomads will now clear the player feature for Bullets in the TNM Super League.
FAM playes club licencing and compliance manager Casper Jangale said they were glad that the two sides had reached an amicable agreement.
Jangale said the FAM players’ status committee settled for K3.5 million after weighing both sides’ arguments.
On his part, Babatunde said he was relieved that he will now be able to play for Bullets in the league.
“It’s something I have been looking forward to,” said the Nigerian who moved to Wanderers in 2019 from defunct Masters Security.
