Newly-crowned Carlsberg Cup champions, Masters Security FC, have said they are ready to sell Nigerian striker Babatunde Adeboye to Nyasa Big Bullets instead of loaning him out.
Masters General Secretary, Zacharia Nyirenda, Tuesday said they were still discussing with Bullets, who wrote them seeking to sign Adeboye on loan ahead of their participation in 2019 Caf Champions League assignments.
The Nigerian has been in form this season, helping Masters to win their first-ever national cup after two seasons in the TNM Super League.
Masters won the cup after beating Wanderers on post-match penalties following a 1-1 draw in regulation time at Kamuzu Stadium last month.
“Bullets wrote us expressing their interest in signing Babatunde on loan. However, we are not comfortable to release him on loan,” Nyirenda said.Advertisement
Meanwhile, Bullets Chief Executive Officer, Fleetwood Haiya, has said they would explore other options before making additions to their Caf squad.
“Yes, I can confirm that we wrote them and they didn’t respond. If they come back to us, we would let you know. Right now, we don’t have a plan of buying him but, in football, sometimes you have to compromise, so we can reach a compromise,” Haiya said.
Bullets last played in Caf in 2015, sailing past Fomboni of Comoros Island before being booted out by Al Hilal of Sudan.
