Irish club Coolock Village FC has filed proof that Nyasa Big Bullets-bound striker Andy Kamlete is a free agent and should be allowed to join the People’s Team.
Bullets chairperson Noel Lipipa said this in an interview yesterday.
He said the documents have since been submitted to Football Association of Malawi (FAM).
Kamlete was among a host of players whose March 31 deadline transfers were rebuffed due to lack of documents to prove the players contractual status at their former clubs, among other queries.
“The letter of clearance from his Irish club will surely aid us to have him cleared. FAM has principally already indicated that he has been cleared, in fact,” said Lipipa.
The chairperson hoped that the 23-year-old will solve the striking problems haunting the People’s Team which failed to score in its opening two Super League matches—a goalless draw against Chitipa United and 1-0 loss to Moyale.
“We are partly banking our hopes on him. However, we will believe that the other strikers we have are still up to the task despite failing to score in two matches.
Kamlete, who is expected to arrive in the country later this month, said he was relieved to see the deal close to completion.
“I was really hurt when I heard that my transfer has failed. I have always wanted to play for Bullets, so it feels good to see things shaping up,” he said.
FAM transfer matching system manager Casper Jangale neither denied nor confirmed receiving the clearance: “I have to verify that first then I will come back to you.”
Kamlete played for Southern Region Football League side Envirom before moving to Green Hawks and leaving for studies in Ireland in 2014.
While at Envirom, he won Division One golden boot and won the same award in the Premier Division while at Hawks. n
