Bullets FC have made a major signing of the second-round Super League transfer window after taking on board Blantyre United influential winger Dalitso Sailesi.
Sailesi has joined the Bullets on a six-month loan, with Bullets having an option to buy him at the end of the season.
Bullets and United confirmed the development in interviews yesterday.
â€œSailesi is in our camp. United were demanding K4 million, but we could not afford that money, so we made an agreement to get him on loan and they agreed.
â€œHe is a top player who will bring a lot of change in our team. We have also agreed terms with Blue Eagles for their star midfielder Micium Mhone and he is already in our camp as well. We are also chasing other three players to be officially revealed when we play Red Lions on Sunday,â€ said Bullets chairperson Malinda Chinyama.
United chairperson Lawson Nakoma said the player wanted to move and they could not block him.
â€œIt was not our desire to let him go as he is one of our top players, but his heart was at Bullets so we decided to loan him out,â€ said Nakoma.
Blue Eagles officials could not be reached for comment on Mhoneâ€™s move.
Mighty Wanderers were also hopeful of finalising the signing of Mapopa Msukwa, Timothy Chitedze and Mike Kaziputa from Tigers before the close of the window last midnight.
â€œThe three players will play on Sunday, against Epac FC. We are almost there. We will also sign one goalkeeper, so on Sunday expect four new faces in the Nomads camp,â€ said Wanderers general secretary David Kanyenda.
Sulom general secretary Williams Banda said they will release the list of all movements done in the past two weeks today.
â€œRed Lions have been the busiest so far, offloading nine and registering nine as well, but we will have a clear picture on other teamâ€™s signings at the close of the transfer window,â€ said Banda.
