Black Leopards eye more Malawi players


Leopards’ scout Kondi Msungama says negotiations have reached an advanced stage and he is waiting for an official letter from Leopards to conclude the deal.

He added that Leopards had already filled their quota of foreign players but were planning to can offload some of them to accommodate the enterprising centre forward.

“If we agree the player could join the team during their training tour to Botswana. But we still have to discuss with Wanderers whether they will release the player,” he said.

Wanderers’ secretary Ambokire Salimu, however, said there had been no official communication on the issue. “I have not been approached formally; I have also just heard that Kondi is brokering the deal.

Leopards have three Malawian players in their squad, Peter Mponda, Fischer Kondowe and Robert Ng’ambi as well as Cameroonian Christian Moudouthe-Bille and Swazi land’s Sibusiso Dlamini.

Another report from Malawi yesterday indicated that the Absa Premiership outfit had also shown an interest in having Wanderers’ striker Joel Chipofya on trial.
