Troubled Mighty Wanderers are targeting five new players amid reports that some players may eventually pave the way for the newcomers in the near future.
While confirming that Wanderers would invade the half-season break transfer market, Wanderers general secretary David Kanyenda on Saturday dismissed talk that they would offload players.
â€œTrue, we intend to add depth to the current squad to enhance competition and guarantee improved performance, but I am not at liberty to disclose names of prospective signings for fear of jeorpadising the deals,â€ said Kanyenda.
â€œWe are looking for a goalkeeper, a central-defender, a defending midfielder, a right-winger and a forward. No decision has been made to offload players. If some wonâ€™t make the grade, we may consider loaning them out so that they get game time.â€
The Nomads have 30 players but, as Kanyenda admitted, half of them are hardly featured. Wanderers recently fired coach Frank â€˜Francoâ€™ Ndawa after a run of four consecutive defeats in league and cup games.
Wanderers have 20 points in the TNM Super League and they are fifth on the table.
