Blantyre United have told Big Bullets to pay a whooping K5.3 million to have Dalitso Sailesi and Brown Mizeyi cleared as talks are still underway to finalize the deal.
Big Bullets general secretary Higger Mkandawire confirmed that Blantyre United also popularly known as Mphembedzu has pegged Sailesi at K2.1 million while Mizeyi at K2.2 million.
Mkandawire however, put up a brave face stressing that the People’s Team will finalize the deal by the end of this week in order to have the duo for their Saturday TNM Super League against Mighty Wanderers at the Kamuzu Stadium in Blantyre.
“Let me assure Bullets fans that we will pay Blantyre United their money this week so that the two players should be available for the Wanderers game. Some people thought the players are back with Blantyre United but l can confirm to the nation that Sailesi and Mizeyi are with us,” said Mkandawire.
However, Blantyre United Technical Director, Lawson Nakoma has emphasized that the duo will only be cleared when Bullets have made payment and warning the Ndirande-based out-fit to pay the amount if they want to use the players on Saturday.
Nakoma said they were tricked by Bullets in a previous transfer of Waile Tembeti and that they do not want the same scenario to be repeated.
“We learnt a lesson in Waile Tembeti’s transfer where they just secured his services without paying us. We do not want such a scenario as such we tell Bullets that no money no clearance for Sailesi and Mizeyi,” he said.
Meanwhile, the two teams have exchanged players with Bullets getting Lawson Chilewe while Mphembedzu have taken Yamikani Tambala from the People’s Team.–Malawi News Agency
