Just a few seasons ago, Big Bullets could not attract the interest of big-name players on the domestic scene, but their revival seems to be gaining momentum.
Blantyre United and Azam Tigers captains Jimmy Chikulekule and Gerald Chimbaka respectively have declared their interest to join the club.
Bullets vice-general secretary Higger Mkandawire on Thursday confirmed that the two players are on the verge of joining them.
â€œI can confirm that the two players are interested to join us, but we are yet to enter into negotiations with their respective clubs. We have not yet spoken to them formally,â€ said Mkandawire.
Both players confirmed they are set to start a new lease of life in the red side of town.
Chikulekule, who was the heartbeat for Blantyre United, said he has already been in talks with Bullets management and technical panel.
â€œI was approached by Bullets, [Mighty] Wanderers and Silver Strikers, but it seems likely that I might join Bullets. I need to face new challenges and I believe Bullets will provide me that platform,â€ he said.
But United coach Elia Kananji said he was not aware about his captainâ€™s intention to leave.
â€œIt is news to me. He has not communicated to the club officially and Bullets have not yet approached us,â€ said Kananji.
Meanwhile, Chimbaka has already started training with Bullets.
â€œIt is true I intend to join Bullets purely on personal reasons,â€ said Chimbaka.
