As the market is open in Tanzania, clubs are busy recruiting players, with Phiri indicating earlier on that he is interested in Malawian players especially a defender and a shot-stopper.

Some months ago, the Tanzanian side was interested in acquiring the services of Silver Strikers goal custodian Brighton Munthali but opted to go for Chaima despite being on a long term contract with the peoples team.

If all goes well for the duo, Bullets is expected to cash in on them as they have running contracts with the Malawi champions.
