Dalitso Sailesi pens reported K22.5 million deal with Lusaka Dynamos


Lusaka Dynamos have reportedly shrugged off competition from Zambian rivals to snap up Nyasa Big Bullets’ explosive attacker, Dalitso Sailesi, at a K22.5 million transfer fee on a five-year contract.

Bullets administrator, Macward Themba, confirmed yesterday that Sailesi sealed the deal in Lusaka, where he travelled to on Tuesday alongside club Chairperson, Noel Lipipa.

“It is official now. He has signed a straight forward deal and he is not coming back. Our net is K17 million. He has signed for K6 million [his personal signing-on fee] and he will be getting an equivalent of K1.4 million [Malawi kwacha] per month,” Themba said.


Reports from Lusaka put the total fee at K22.5 million ($30,000).

Several foreign clubs, including Power Dynamos also from Zambia, confirmed earlier this week through their Chief Executive Officer, Ricky Mamfunda, that their coach had, after watching Sailesi at the 2017 Cosafa Castle Cup in South Africa recently, recommended his signing.

Lusaka Dynamos officials were not readily available for a comment yesterday on the former Blantyre United winger who starred for the Flames at the Cosafa Cup.


Broker of the deal, Felix Sapao, earlier claimed that it was unprofessional for the Malawi media to contact an interested buying club before a contract was sealed.

As we went to press, Lusaka Dynamos had, according to Football Association of Malawi (Fam) Transfer Matching System Manager, Casper Jangale, not yet started processing electronically Sailesi’s transfer from Bullets under the Transfer Matching System.

Lusaka Dynamos can only claim full ownership of Sailesi once Fam issues his International Transfer Certificate.

Sailesi is reportedly in his early 20s. If he is Under-23, his transfer might be subject to further cuts with his previous developmental clubs.

Sailesi is arguably the only second Malawian likely to play in the Zambian league after former Escom United and Be Forward Wanderers midfielder, Luka Milanzi, who had a stint at Zesco.

Lusaka Dynamos was formed in 1979 by Hanif Adams, who was a popular DJ in Lusaka nightclubs, according to internet reports.

Lusaka Dynamos, who are reportedly yet to win a league title but claimed the 2008 BP Top 8 Cup, have sold players to Germany, Israel and South Africa.
