Bullets FC have expressed interest to sign midfielder Dalitso Sailesi on a long-term deal after being impressed with his performance in the four months he has been at the team.
Sailesi signed a half-season loan deal from Blantyre United and it expires on Sunday.
He has had a good time at Bullets, where he established himself as a regular on the left-wing and has scored two league goals so far.
Bullets general secretary Higger Mkandawire said Sailesi has proved beyond doubt that he is a quality player and they want to sign him permanently.
“The good thing is that he is also interested to stay at the club. So it is up to us and BT United to agree on the deal,” said Mkandawire.
Sailesi confirmed his interest to remain at Bullets.
“I have had a wonderful time here and I want to stay. This is a big club and playing here for a number of seasons can help me improve my game and play for the national team,” he said.
Blantyre United technical director Lawson Nakoma said they will wait for official communication from Bullets, but he said in the meantime, Sailesi will return after the end of the season on Sunday.
Sailesi caused controversy when he refused to join Bullets in the first place, opting for Tigers FC despite United and Bullets striking a loan deal.
