Wanderers eye Mohammed Sulumba as Silver Strikers want Civil’s Nickson Mwase

As teams continue with preparations for the 2020 season, giants Be Forward Wanderers and Silver Strikers continue to stamp their authority on the transfer market.

Wanderers have turned their attention to prodigal son Mohammed Sulumba as they aim at adding firepower to their frontline.

This comes just days after the Nomads released strikers Zicco Mkanda and Peter Katsonga.

Wanderers General Secretary, Victor Maunde, said Sulumba is being considered alongside TN Stars striker Stain Davie. “Sulumba is an option for us and we believe he still has the energy to play for a big club like Wanderers. China Chirwa is almost a done deal but we are also considering Davie from Stars,” Maunde said.

Sulumba spent last season at Civo United and netted vital goals for the Lilongwe-based club.

The Civil Servants have since expressed interest to extend their romance with the former Nyasa Big Bullets and Polokwane City striker.

Civil General Secretary, Ronald Chiwaula, said the club would extend the deal if the player was willing to stay put.

“He did well last season and we want him to continue playing for us.

But this will depend on what we will agree with him,” Chiwaula said. If Sulumba returns to the Nomads, he will compete for places with Babatunde Adepoju, Vincent Nyangulu and Misheck Botomani.

Wanderers have also promoted youthful strikers Aubrey Maloya and Wisdom Mpinganjira, who was on loan at Southern Region Football League Premier Division side Hangover.

Sulumba is currently in Vietnam where he went for trials at League One side Nam Dinh FC.

The forward made headlines when he joined Bullets after spending a season on loan at Wanderers from Blantyre United in 2016.

He spent two seasons at Bullets before joining South Africa Premier Soccer League side Polokwane in a deal reported to have been worth K20 million but struggled for game time.

In the current transfer window, the Nomads have already signed defender Lughano Kayira from Mzuzu Warriors, formerly Mzuni FC.

Meanwhile, Silver have written Capital City rivals Civil expressing interest to sign Nickson Mwase.

The defender joined Civil from Mighty Tigers last season and instantly cemented his place to help his new team finish in the top eight of the TNM Super League last season. Chiwaula confirmed receipt of the letter from Silver, saying they were yet to make a decision.

Silver have already signed striker Foster Biton from Blue Eagles with Zambian coach Daniel Kabwe likely to make more signings before the start of the season.

The Central Bankers recently rejected the return of former players Lucky Malata, Blessings Tembo and Matthews Sibale.
