It’s a done deal. Be Forward Wanderers yesterday completed the signing of ex-Silver Strikers defender and captain Lucky Malata.
But while confirming the development, the Nomads team manager Stevie Madeira kept a tight lid on the details, including the period.
“We are not divulging any further details. All I can say is that we have sealed the deal and he is now a Nomad,” he said.
However, according to The Nation findings, the Flames centre back has signed a three-year deal that will see him cart home K4 million signing-on fee.
Malata was unveiled as a Nomads player during a brief signing ceremony at their clubhouse along Lali Lubani Road in Chichiri, Blantyre conducted by the team’s second vice-chairperson Allan Chuma.
Malata has joined the Nomads after Silver failed to meet his terms, including a signing-on fee in excess of K5 million.
One of Silver trustees Chiku Kalilombe recently confirmed that their efforts to have Malata’s deal renewed ended in deadlock because he asked for “an exorbitant signing-on fee which we could not afford.” n
