Nyasa Big Bullets and Flames midfielder Dalitso Sailesi yesterday signed a five-year deal with Zambian topflight league outfit Lusaka Dynamos, Bullets chairperson Noel Lipipa has confirmed.
Lipipa, who accompanied the player to Zambia, said: “I can confirm that the deal is done. Sailesi has signed a five-year contract with Dynamos. He will receive his sign on fee this afternoon [yesterday] and Bullets’ cut from the deal will be wired through our bank account.”
“Although I have all the details in hand, Dynamos do not want the figures mentioned in the media and we will stick to their wish.”
According to Lipipa, the 21-year-old will stay on in Lusaka until Monday as he is expected to watch some Dynamos games this weekend.
On his part, Sailesi said he is satisfied with the deal and he will do his best to make the country proud.
“It has always been a dream for me to play professional football and I am happy it has finally come true. I will fight hard and use this opportunity as a stepping stone to big clubs in Europe,” he said.
The former Blantyre United player caught the eye of Dynamos and other high-profile clubs following his superb performance at the just ended Cosafa Castle Cup in South Africa.
Sailesi was the Flames most outstanding player, winning the man-of-the-match award when the Flames settled for a goalless draw with Mauritius.
