Be Forward Wanderers say they are not yet done on the transfer market and are set to sign a few more new players.
Nomads general secretary Mike Butao said this in reaction to team manager Stevie Madeira’s posting on social media on Wednesday that they have completed signings ahead of the 2019 season.
“What the team manager posted is not correct. There could be three or four more prospective new signings.
“For instance, on the left flank, we only have Mike Kaziputa and we need to bring in another player. We also have two defenders who are under assessment and we are waiting for the coach [Bob Mpinganjira] to take a look at them, but the initial stand is that we have to get them on board,” he said.
The Nomads GS also said they are looking at signing a striker.
Although Butao kept a tight lid on their targets, an inside source confided in The Nation that the Nomads are set to unveil former Masters Security FC striker Vincent Nyangulu and second-tier Thumbs Up Southern Region Football League side Hangover’s enterprising midfielder Rabson Richard today.
But last week, Masters owner and chairperson Alfred Gangata said Nyangulu has a running contract with Migwanya.
They are also set to unveil Tigers talisman Peter Katsonga next week following the expiry of his contract today.
The player is reported to have already penned a pre-contract.
So far, the Nomads have signed Babatunde Adepoju and Francis Mkonda from Masters as well as Fransisco Madinga from Namiwawa who has been on loan at Lali Lubani Road for the past two seasons.
The Nomads have lost the services of Precious Sambani, Yamikani Chester, Joseph Kamwendo, Peter Wadabwa and Ernest Tambe.
Last season, the Nomads were dethroned as TNM Super League champions after finishing second. But they won the Fisd Challenge Cup and were runners-up in Carlsberg Cup.
