VERSATILE Be Forward Wanderers attacker, Amos Bello, is staying put at Lali Lubani Road despite reports linking him with bitter rivals Nyasa Big Bullets in the re-opened transfer window.
Details have emerged that Bullets, through some unnamed officials, approached the injured forward on the possibility of luring him to the People’s Team.
Bello’s manager, Duncan Kamwendo, said his client will see out the remainder of his contract at Wanderers. Kamwendo confirmed that Bello was approached by some Bullets officials but described the move as ‘not being serious’.
“Bello is a Wanderers player and he has a running contract until the end of the season. On top of that, his contract states that he cannot join any local team unless otherwise,” Kamwendo said.
Wanderers Vice General Secretary, Chris Kananji, said Bello is one of the key players for Nomads. “He is still training with the team as he is recovering. We hope he will be in good shape to compete for a place in the team once he is fully fit,” Kananji said.
Bello has not featured for Wanderers this season due to the injury he sustained in a Big Four Bonanza at Bingu National Stadium in Lilongwe early this year. He has resumed training alongside Ishmael Thindwa but is yet to gain full fitness.
The Nigerian is one of the most talented fowards in domestic football as he has the abilities to score and create chances for his teammates. He has great strength in dribbling his way through defences but lacks the fighting spirit.
At Wanderers, he faces tough competition for a place as the team has several talented forwards like Esau Kanyenda, Peter Wadabwa, Precious Msosa and Jaffalie Chande.
Before the start of the season, Bello was linked with a move to Silver Strikers but the deal did not go through. In his debut season in the TNM Super League, Bello netted three goals in all competitions.
