With three months remaining on his contract with Nyasa Big Bullets, the club’s red-hot midfielder, Jaffalie Chande, has dismissed reports that he will cross the floor to arch rivals, Be Forward Wanderers.
Chande joined Bullets in 2014 from Epac, and it is reported that he held talks with the 2015 Carlsberg Cup kings, Wanderers.
“It is true that my contract with Bullets will expire in May, and it is not automatic that I am leaving the club because my bosses invited me for a meeting on the same issue. They asked me to extend my stay here, and we will probably finish our discussions this week,” Chande said.
Bullets vice-general secretary, Kelvin Moyo, said he was optimistic that the player will sign a new contract to help the team defend the TNM Super League.
Moyo said Bullets cannot afford to lose Chande as the team’s top striker, Chiukepo Msowoya might also be lost to a foreign team. Msowoya is undergoing trials at Bloemfontein Celtic in South Africa.
“As a club, we need to sit down first and agree what new we can offer to him [Chande] because it is like we are also signing a new player. Mind you that it’s not easy to play around with players, especially when it comes to contract extensions. We believe that despite being a player, he is also a BB supporter,” Moyo said.
Chande finished the 2015 TNM Super League season with 12 goals
