Mighty Mukuru Wanderers have turned their attention to Flames defender Lawrence Chaziya, who returned home from Jordan last month.
Chaziya, who was one of Malawi’s revelations at the Africa Cup of Nations finals in Cameroon, confirmed opening discussions with Wanderers.
“I will be in Blantyre come January. We held talks with Wanderers through Adelaide Migogo. Everything is now going in the right direction,” the former Civil Service United defender said.
Chaziya has also been linked with moves to either Wanderers’ rivals Nyasa Big Bullets or Silver Strikers.
The 24-year-old defender is a free agent, after being released by Jordanian Pro League side Al Hussein Irbid SC at the end of his 10-month contract.
It means Wanderers or any other successful club will only need to agree and pay personal terms.
Wanderers’ spokesperson Clement Stambuli could neither confirm nor deny the development.
“The truth is that our president, Thom Mpinganjira, wants to build a team that will not only dominate Malawi football but also export players.
“The team should also compete at the international stage. We are serious about the project we have started at the club,”Stambuli said.
Wanderers have taken the transfer market by storm after signing Mphatso Kamanga from Karonga United and Christopher Kumwembe from Civil Service United.
As we went to press Monday, Wanderers officials were rocked in a meeting in the capital city, finalising discussions with Blue Eagles on the transfer fee of Gaddie Chirwa.
The newly crowned Airtel Top 8 Cup champions have been active on the transfer market ahead of the new season.
Wanderers Coach Mark Harrison, who is on holiday in the United Kingdom, advised the club to sign six players.
This season, Wanderers finished the TNM Super League on fourth position with 56 points from 30 matches.
