With vultures hunting for players on the open players’ market, Be Forward Wanderers are not taking chances on their striker-in-chief, Peter Wadabwa.
With a year to go before the end of his two-year contract signed last season, Wanderers’ General Secretary, Mike Butao, has confirmed that they have opened contract extension talk.
“He has a year remaining on his contract, but at Wanderers, we do not wait for a contract to end,” Butao said on Thursday.
He shrugged off talk that Wanderers might be scared of losing the forward to his former employer, Silver Strikers, who are linked with the Nomads’ star midfielder, Joseph Kamwendo.
Silver seem determined to invade Wanderers after they signed defender Lucky Malata from the Bankers as a free agent.
But Butao said they were not shaken, whereas his Silver counterpart, Thabo Nyirenda kept a tight lid on the players they are targeting.
“If we signed Malata, it is not our problem as the player was not on a contract,” Butao said.
Nyirenda, who said they admire Kamwendo’s qualities, refused to disclose the identity of their targets.
“We have our own targets and Kamwendo is not one of them,” he said.
