Nyasa Big Bullets have disclosed plans to make one or two signings as they step up preparations for Caf Champions League.
This comes after Bullets completed the signing of striker Anthony Mfune on a three-year deal from Karonga United Sunday.
Mfune became Bullets’ fifth signing in this campaign following the arrival of Nigerian Babatunde Adepoju from Mighty Wanderers, Eric Kaonga from Ekwendeni Hammers, Paul Kasungwi from Red Lions and Alick Lungu.
Bullets Chief Executive Officer Suzgo Nyirenda said the arrival of new players would depend on recommendations from the Kalisto Pasuwa led technical panel.
“The Cecafa Kagame Cup will also give us a clear picture of the strength of our squad. We might sign one or two players after the Cecafa Cup,” Nyirenda said.
Both Babatunde and Mfune will be allowed to feature for Bullets in Caf Champions League but are barred from domestic competitions until the next transfer window.
Mfune told the club’s website that he was hoping to advance his career.
“I am looking forward to playing for my new club. I am grateful to Karonga for giving me an opportunity to play for the club and opening this opportunity to move to Bullets,” Mfune told Bullets’ website.
The 23-year-old attacker has been in form, having scored six goals for his former club. He also earned a maiden call-up to Malawi National Football Team before the Cosafa Cup but was released when he tested positive for Covid.
He is considered as a replacement for Mike Mkwate, who moved to Polokwane City.
Bullets will take part in Caf Champions League after missing out on last year’s edition due to the Covid Pandemic whereas Silver Strikers will take part in Confederation Cup having participated in 2018.
The draw for Caf Champions League is expected to take place on August 15.
As part of preparations for Confederation Cup, Silver have lined up four new signings namely striker Muhammad Sulumba, Gastin Simkonda, Chikoti Chirwa and Christin Mhangama on loan.
