Silver Chief Executive Officer Thokozani Chimbali said they have a list of players that the technical panel recommended.

“We are not yet done on the transfer market. The technical panel gave us a list of players that can add value to the team.

We have managed to sign some and we want to complete the task. We are remaining with a defender and striker,” Chimbali said.

The Area 47 side has also extended Mark Fodya’s contract for another three years.

The Malawi National Football Team defender’s contract was due to expire today.

Also assured of a longer stay at Silver is head coach Daniel Kabwe, who has agreed a new deal in principle after a good performance in his debut season.

The Zambian’s contract is due to expire in February.

Silver had a successful season after winning the inaugural FDH Bank Cup and finishing second in the TNM Super League and the Airtel Top 8 Cup.

The league title was their main target for the 2020-21 season after it eluded them for seven years.

Former Silver midfielder Bothwell Saka said the club was heading in the right direction.

“The team performed well in the just-ended season. I like what Kabwe has done and I believe we will be the team to beat next season,” Saka said.

The newcomers are expected to replace Trevor Kalema, Mphatso Dzongololo and Hadji Wali, who have been transfer-listed.

Kalema and Dzongololo are not in Kabwe’s plans due to poor performance whereas Wali is being released on disciplinary grounds as he is reported to have been absconding training.
