As the Super League transfer window closes midnight, Nyasa Big Bullets are hoping to beat the deadline to sign former Jomo Cosmos midfielder Micium Mhone.
Mhone jetted back from South Africa on Wednesday via Chileka Airport in Blantyre and had talks with Nyasa Big Bullets officials.
He was later spotted at Bullets training session at Kamuzu Stadium where he also met the club’s head coach Nsanzurwimo Ramadhan before leaving for Annies Lodge where he is staying.
However, the coach has refused to comment on the player’s move.
“We intend to conclude transfers of some players before the window closes, but I cannot disclose their names,” he said.
“If we fail to conclude the deals, there is always the possibility of getting free agents, who we can sign even after the close of the window.”
However, Bullets are set to clash with Mhone’s former club Blue Eagles, who claim they still have a say in the free agent’s future.
Eagles general secretary Ulemu Kalua said the player will rejoin them.
“Micium is still attached to Blue Eagles. He is an officer in Malawi Police Service and he is rejoining our club. Even if another club wants to sign him, they would have to talk to us first,” he said.
The 2017 transfer window has been quiet for most of the big clubs.
Mighty Be Forward Wanderers led the transfer market.
They are the only ones to have signed a big name player in defender Lucky Malata from Silver Strikers.
The Nomads also beat rivals Nyasa Big Bullets to the centre-back’s signature.
Bullets were the first to ask for Malata in 2016 season, but the Bankers put their foot down.
However, when the player’s contract expired, the Bankers could not afford the 2016 season best defender’s K5 million signing on fee demand.
But perhaps the transfer window’s biggest signing is Yamikani Chester from Azam Tigers to Wanderers.
After months of speculation on the attacking midfielder’s destination, again the Nomads beat Bullets to the game and signed the lanky youngster.
As the window closes midnight, Bullets have so far signed Chipiku League top goalscorer Misheck Bottoman from Mitra Icons and Southern Region Masters Security League top goalscorer Dave Banda from Nsanama.
Silver Strikers’ top signings are Ghanaian striker Michael Mensah Teteeh, Nigerian Yinus Sherif Olenrewaju and Hygiene Mwandepeka from Karonga United.
The other new faces Travor Kalema, Mphatso Chintondo, Frank Chizuze, Thoko Ngwira, Paul Chikalema, Fanizo Lupiya, Hadgi Wali, and Ronald Pangani.
