Former Be Forward Wanderers hitman Zicco Mkanda has finally completed a switch to Nyasa Big Bullets after signing a one-year deal with Bullets on Tuesday.
Bullets have signed Mkanda as a free agent following the expiry of his contract at Wanderers earlier this year.
Bullets Chief Administration Officer, Albert Chigoga, said Mkanda had impressed their technical panel after a month’s assessment.
Chigoga said they believe Mkanda is good enough to help Bullets win silverware in the new season.
“Mkanda is now our player. We have no doubt that his capabilities on the field of play will help us accomplish our mission this year,” Chigoga said.
He also disclosed that Karonga United’s Mischeck Selemani had completed his move to the People’s Team on a three-year deal.
“We reached an agreement with Karonga and the player himself. Selemani is just 22 years old and we are hopeful that he will add value to our squad,” Chigoga said.
Mkanda said he was excited with the move and promised to deliver for his new club.
“It is the wish of every player to join a club like Bullets. I am happy to be here and I would like to assure all Bullets fans that I will try my best to make them happy by scoring goals. Playing for Bullets is an honour, not only to me, but to my family as well.
“I have no hard feelings for my former club Wanderers. I just had to move on after negotiations for a new contract failed. Bullets have one of the best coaches in the country and great players too, so we have no excuse for failing to deliver,” he said.
On Sunday, Bullets made more progress on the transfer market after making Malawi national football team attacker Peter Banda’s stay at the club permanent following the expiry of his loan from Griffin Young Stars.
Banda signed a three-year deal with Bullets, ending speculation that he was on the verge of joining Silver Strikers.
Bullets start the defence of their TNM Super League title by hosting Blue Eagles on Saturday at Kamuzu Stadium in Blantyre.
