Up and coming midfielder Righteous Banda has said he is delighted to be moving to “the biggest club in Malawi” after Nyasa Big Bullets agreed a K5.5 million fee to sign player from Civil Sporting Club.
“Who would say no to the biggest club in Malawi?”, Banda told Nyasa Times.
“When BB came calling, I could no resist. So I‘m really happy to have signed for Bullets and hopefully be part of their history,” he said.
Banda has signed a two-year contract in presence of his manager Jimmy Linje and Civil Sporting general secretary Ronald Chiwaula.
Earlier on, there were fears that the deal was collapsing following reports that Civil demanded K10 million plus a player MacPhallen Ngwira.
However, the two parties finally agreed a fee of K5.5 million and K4 million signing on fee, with the player already given K3 million.
The agreement has a clause that Civil will get a 20 percent cut should the player be old outside the country.
Banda, 22, scored seven goals for Civil in the just ended season attracting interest from Bullets.
The player who can also play as a striker and a winger was promoted from Civil’s reswerve side four years ago.
This is Bullets’ first signing in the ongoing local transfer window.
On Tuesday, Bullets missed out on Lazarus Nyemera who was confirmed as a Silver Strikers player after being heavily linked with a move to the Blantyre based giants.Follow and Subscribe Nyasa TV :
