Bullets FC starlet Miracle Kabeya left on Monday to undergo trials at South Africa’s top league side Blomfontein Celtic.
Bullets General Secretary Harold Fote said Celtic had expressed interest in the Under-20 national team striker after being spotted by their scouts following the player’s exploits.
But Fote did not shed more details on the deal saying Bullets will start negotiations after the outcome of the trials.
“They have invited him for trials and if they will be impressed we are going to start negotiations regarding the transfer fee,” Fote said.
“We are optimistic that the deal will materialise because the player has potential and skilful.”
He said Celtic caught the attention of the Bullets player following the exploits of compatriot striker Gabadinho Mhango on his debut season at the club.
Gabadinho stole the limelight after scoring eight league goals on his season and capped it by winning Young Player Award and Golden Boot Awards at Celtic.
Kabeya could become the third Malawian player at Celtic with Flames defender Limbikani Mzava also plying his trade at the club.
Former Flames and Silver Strikers midfielder John Maduka also saw off his impressive professional career at Celtic after a long stint with Umtata Bush Bucks.
Maduka started his career as striker at Silver but switched to attacking midfielder while playing for Bush Bucks.
