Bullets FC have completed Epac United’s striker Jafali Chande move after paying a K2.5 million.
Epac United General Secretary Ro Mdechi confirmed the development that Bullets have paid the money to get the services of the striker who was also wanted by Silver Strikers.
Mdechi said the club made a K3.5 million asking price for the player but Bullets negotiated for K2.5 million.
“We proposed a transfer fee of K3.5 million to Bullets but they bargained for us to reduce it to K2.5 million,” Mdechi said.
He said Silver, who were highly linked with the player during the transfer window, silently pulled out after Epac came up with K3.5 million transfer fee.
“Silver, who were seriously pursuing the player, did not come back to us after we told them that we are looking for at least K3.5 million,” he said.
“They wanted the transfer fee to be K1.5 million and Bullets offered K2.5 million.”
Bullets General Secretary Harold Fote said the team provisionally agreed a transfer of K2.5 million but wanted Epac to consider a K2 million deal.
“We had earlier agreed to pay K2.5 million but after considering it we requested them K2 million offer because of the mutual relationship between the two clubs,” Fote said.
Chande has scored so far six goals in the TNM Super League for Epac United while the joint top goal scorer Deus Nkutu of Moyale and Kumbukani Mwambeni of Red Lions have 10 goals apiece.
Bullets also recruited striker Mussa Manyenje and defender Pilirani Zonda from Epac at K2 million each at the start of the season.
However Manyenje, the former Blantyre United player, has failed to live up to the people’s expectation having only to score one goal in the Carlsberg Cup and another in the Super League.
But Zonda has established himself to become a key player in Bullets defence which has also earned him a call up in the national team.
Bullets’first choice goalkeeper Owen Chaima also switched to Epac at the start of the season having falling down on the pecking order to rejuvenated Vincent Gona.Follow and Subscribe Nyasa TV :
