Blue Eagles are set to sign former Comoros Island’s Fomboni FC Malawian striker Winster Phiri after the player impressed the Lilongwe based Police team.
Blue Eagles team manager Gabriel Chirwa said the burly forward had done enough to earn contract at the Nankhaka outfit.
Chirwa said the team was impressed with the performance of the players since he started training.
He was featured in Mzuzu during the team’s preparations and had a grand game in which Eagles drew one-all and triumphed 2-0 over Moyale Barracks.
“He is a good player and we are ready to sign him to beef up our striking force. But we are still waiting for communication from Fomboni if his contract indeed expired.
Phiri confirmed his intention to return to Malawi saying the contract had expired.
“I am not going back to Comoros because my contract has expired and want to join Blue Eagles this season. I have already proved to Malawians that I still a good player and did well in CAF against Bullets,” he said. However on his Facebook page Phiri gave hints on leaving Fomboni saying through a post that football is a short term career.
The former Eagle Beaks player, a club which was a feeder to Blue Eagles but once join the top Super League said he was motivated by job prospects at the club.
“There’s nothing on paper but they have promised me to offer me employment,” he said but did not elaborate the nature of the job.
