Big Bullets have approached Chipiku Central Region League (CRFL) outfit Adam FC on the possibility of signing their striker Mude Jeffrey.
“It is true that Bullets have expressed interest to sign Mude (Jeffery). Silver Strikes and Civo United are other teams also to have expressed similar interest, but we are settling for Bullets. The player himself is a Bullets fan,” said Adams FC team manager and spokesperson Aisha Bunaya in an interview on Tuesday.
Bunaya said as a club they have opened up talks with Bullets.
“We are yet to reach a deal, but once that is done I will come back to you,” said Bunaya.
Bullets deputy general secretary Higger Mkandawire and head coach Edington Ngâ€™onamo confirmed the talks between them and Adams FC.
“The coach (Ngâ€™onamo) did recommend the signing of Mr. Jeffery to the executive and we have given our blessings, but it is up to them to weigh if the player is up for Super League action,” said Mkandawire.
Ngâ€™onamo said they hope to finalise the deal today.
“He is a youngster with great talent and could be a good addition to our squad,” said Ngâ€™onamo, who is rebuilding Bullets together with his assistant Gerald Phiri.
If the deal is reached, the 17-year-old CRFL top goal scorer will have to compete against Grant Lungu, Gabadinho Mhango, Godfrey Masonda and Peter Note in attack.
Jeffrey has netted 42 goals in the 2011-12 season to receive the Golden Boot Award which goes with a K10 000 ($60) prize.
