Just days after releasing some players, Silver Strikers are on the verge of completing deals with four new players ahead of the 2023 season.

Details have emerged that Silver have already agreed terms with TN Stars striker China Chirwa, Nyasa Big Bullets midfielder Misheck Selemani and Ekwendeni Hammers duo Emmanuel Kaunda and Gift Chunga. They are also interested in blossoming striker Christopher Gototo, who spent the second round on loan at Blue Eagles from Ascent Academy, but nothing concrete has been agreed.

However, Silver Chief Executive Officer Thokozani Chimbali kept a tight lid on the identities of the new players.

’’We will announce the names of the new players once everything has been finalised,’’ Chimbali said.

Selemani is likely to join Silver for free as his contract with Bullets is set to expire in March this year.

However, Seleman was not readily available for his comment Sunday.

Bullets Chief Administration Officer Albert Chigoga said Selemani rejected contract extension.

“He informed us about his decision not to sign the new contract as he wants to return to Tanzania to be close to his family. We granted him his wish because his performance kept on deteriorating,’’ Chigoga said.

The Central Bankers released five players namely Frank Banda, Blessings Tembo, Tawonga Chimodzi, Prince Phiri and Captain Mike Robert as part of the restricting process. Two more players are expected to be released before the start of the new season.

Silver finished the 2022 season empty handed. They finished on position five in the TNM Super League with 50 points, 23 points behind champions Bullets. The Central Bankers also exited the FDH Bank Cup in the round of 16 after suffering 5-3 a loss to Dedza Dynamos and were knocked out of the semifinals of the Airtel Top 8 Cup following their 3-1 loss to Bullets.
