Mighty Be Forward Wanderers have negotiated for K1.7 million (US$3 778) for former Epac winger Ibrahim Sadik.
Last week, Epac had recalled the attacking midfielder from Wanderers for their failure to pay the agreed fees.
Epac treasurer Mark Tsinde refused to accept K1.5 million (US$3 333) from Mike Butao, whose is Wanderers general secretary, insisting that they pay K2 million (US$4 444).
But on Friday, Be Forward Wanderers vice-chairperson Christopher Kananji brokered the deal after paying Epac K1.7 million with a condition that Wanderers will pay Super League of Malawi [Sulom] their 20 percent cut.
“Now we have settled the matter. We took long to pay because it takes time for us to get our chunks from our sponsors Be Forward in Japan. But we are happy to have Sadik on permanent deal. He is an alternative to Mike Kaziputa in case of injury. We believe he is an important addition to the club,” said Kananji.
He said the purchase was as a result of request from coach Elia Kananji who wanted to add depth in the midfield.
In a separate interview, Tsinde also confirmed that the deal is wrapped and they have given clearance to Nomads to use the player.
“I can safely say we had successful negotiations with Wanderers and we settled for K1.7 million. As of this moment the players is theirs and we have given them a go ahead to use him in their fixtures. In deals like this there is always a cut for Sulom and we arranged that Wanderers will pay Sulom their dues,” said Tsinde.
