South Africa National Glad Africa Championship side TS sporting say they are ready to pay R375, 000 (about K15 million) for talented Nyasa Big Bullets winger Peter Banda.
But TNM Super League champions Nyasa Big Bullets claimed that the South African club was offering R15, 000 (about K600, 000) for the player. Recently, Bullets put a K40 million price tag on the former Griffin Young Stars attacker.
Bullets chief administration officer, Albert Chigoga said the ball was in the Sporting’s court.
“We have not closed the door for them and we are willing to discuss business with them. Honestly, the ball is in their court,” Chigoga said.
Sporting already have Malawian attacker Chawanangwa Kaonga who signed a two year deal from Mozambican side champions Costa do Sol in January this year.
Sporting, speaking through Malawian journalist Benjamin Nyirenda, laughed off Bullets claims saying they were ready to pay K15 million for the player.
“It is not true we cannot offer a small figure like that for a good player like Peter. We cannot pay K600, 000 because this is too small and he cannot even get that money as salary. In South Africa, players get good money every month,” he said.
Banda made his deal permanent when he signed a three-year deal with Bullets in February this year after spending a season on loan from Griffin.
He was voted as the Player of the Season in his debut season. Before committing his future, Banda was on the radar of Capital City giants Silver Strikers. Banda also had unsuccessful trials with South African clubs Orlando Pirates and Bidvest Wits. He also went to Belgium at Club Brugge alongside teammate Precious Sambani.
