Blantyre United Technical Director and sponsor Lawson Nakoma has dismissed claims by Silver Strikers that they have completed the signing of midfielder Victor Limbani for a fee of K1.8 million.
The player is currently on loan at Bullets F.C.
Silver Strikers through its General Secretary Mike Tembo announced the signing of former Blantyre United play maker in an interview with a local radio station-Zodiak on Tuesday.
According to Tembo, they signed the player following Bullets failure to give the player a formal contract hence setting him free to join any club of his choice.
He claimed that United’s technical director Lawson Nakoma gave Silver a go ahead to launch negotiations with the player since Bullets failed to give the player a contract.
But in a telephone interview with Nyasa Times on Tuesday 24th February, 2015, Nakoma vehemently refuted Silvers claims and revealed that apart from Bullets, there are also other clubs including Mighty Be Forward Wanderers chasing Limbani’s signature.
“Bidders are still coming and if we set a price now, we will compromise the bidding process in the process injuring ourselves on the price tag” Nakoma told Nyasa Times.
“It is too early to comment but come Monday or Tuesday, we will come out into open to announce the actual club [that we have agreed terms with and have signed Limbani]” he said.
When queried by Nyasa Times on the selling price tag for Limbani, Nakoma refused to reveal the required amount and also emphasized that a player of Limbani’s caliber cannot be sold at a price of K1.8 million as claimed by Silver.
“K1.8 million for Limbani? No! That is impossible; maybe if you talk of releasing him on loan to another club at that price not selling him that is not enough” he said.
Meanwhile, the next destination for Limbani who currently in the Bullets squad registered for Confederation of African Football (CAF) competition remains unknown.Follow and Subscribe Nyasa TV :
