Football Association of Malawi (Fam) had advised Big Bullets and Kamuzu Barracks to sign a proper loan deal agreement on attacking midfielder Harvey Nkacha, whose services are being sought at the ‘People’s team’ ahead of the club’s Confederation of African Football (Caf) assignments.
Bullets had initially wanted to rope in the Kamuzu Barracks star player and Moyale Barracks goal poacher Gastin Simkonda but according to information from the Malawi Defence Force (MDF), the latter will not be available as he is expected to go to Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC) on peace keeping mission.
However, MDF, through its Deputy Commander Lieutenant General Griffin Spoon Phiri has reportedly given Bullets the go ahead to rope in Nkacha on condition that he will only assist the club in its Caf campaign while still offering his services at Kamuzu Barracks FC.
Earlier, MDF, through its spokesperson Lieutenant Colonel Francis Kakhuta-Banda indicated it was not possible for MDF to release the two players because their respective clubs would need their services as they prepare for the new season.
The latest development has drawn mixed feelings from soccer followers with some saying it is impossible for Nkacha to play for both clubs at the same time while others suggest the player can feature for Bullets
in the Champions League and play for KB in domestic games.
Shedding light on the issue in an interview with Zodiac Broadcasting Station (ZBS) Fam international transfer matching system expert Casper Jangale said it was impossible for Nkacha to play for both clubs at
the same time.
He advised Bullets and Kamuzu Barracks to sign a proper loan agreement that is in line with Fifa transfer regulations.
“It is not possible for the play to feature for both clubs at the same time. If the player is loaned to Bullets, he cannot play for Kamuzu Barracks during the loan period. The two clubs have the option to sign a short-term loan deal which ranges from one month to six months or a one year deal,” said Jangale.
