Nyasa Bullets FC striker Chiukepo Msowoya has returned from South Africa after undergoing trials at top league side Bloemfontein Celtic but will remain with the TNM Super League champions.
Bullets Technical Director Billy Tewesa, who was also the manager of the player, disclosed that Chiukepo has passed the trials but was told to join the club in July.
Tewesa said Chiukepo has returned to Bullets disputing allegations linking the player Silver Strikers.
“He is back and he told me that he has passed the trials but would join the team in July because the quota for foreign players is full,” Tewesa said.
“Let me say that there’s no way Chiukepo can leave Bullets now for any other club as it is being alleged. He is our player, therefore he is going nowhere.”
He said the former South Africa top league side Orlando Pirates player could not get any better offer than at Bullets who have secured a tantalising K500 million five-year deal from a tobacco manufacturing entity.
Celtic invited Chiukepo for trials after his compatriot Gabadinho Mhango signed a pre-contract with Bidvest Wits.
The club reacted by terminating Mhango’s contract which was due to expire in June hence calling for Malawi’s top league joint top goal scorer with 14 goals.
Bullets led by their former coach Burundian tactician Nsanzarwimo Ramadhan roped in Chiukepo after a terrible season at Mozambican club’s Maxeque.
