Big Bullets defender Sankhani Mkandawire is expected to leave on Tuesday for South Africa to undergo trials at second tier league club Black Leopards.
Bullets General Secretary Harold Fote said all the logistics concerning his trip to South Africa were in place.
“Sankhani will leave for South Africa for trials on Tuesday and we are excited about this because it will offer a better chance to play professional football again,” Fote said.
“Football is a short term career and when players get such deals it is encouraging.”
Fote said Bullets would have to find a replacement within the squad.
“We will miss Sankhani’s services should he passes the trials because he has been understanding this season but we are ready to replace him from the defenders we have in the squad,” he said.
“This will give a chance to up-and-coming defenders to show what they are capable of doing.”
Bullets chairman Kondie Msungama, who is also the Black Leopards’ scout, has brokered the deal.
Sankhani missed both Malawi national team game against Mozambique on 6 July in Lilongwe organised as part of Malawi’s 50th anniversary of independence and Bullets’ match against Blantyre United on Monday in which they won 2-1 to keep their title hopes alive.
