The 21-year old pacey Nyasa Big Bullets winger caught the eyes of many clubs with his superb performance at the just ended Cosafa Castle Cup in South Africa but its Zambia’s Power Dynamos who have won the race for his signature as he has left Malawi to sign an outright contract.
Dalitso Sailesi has left for Zambia today alongside his agent Chingeni Agumbala and Bullets Chairman Noel Lipipa to seal the deal which is expected to be made official on Thursday.
He left the country on Wednesday and it has been reported that Bullets will receive K17 million from the deal. Sailesi was contracted to the Blantyre based side till 2020.
Earlier last week, Bullets General Secretary Albert Chigoga told the local media that the Zambian side were ready to offer an outright contract for the winger having been impressed with his display during the tournament from which he won a man of the match award during Malawi’s goalless draw to Mauritius.
“Yes the have shown strong interest and we are still discussing,” said Chigoga earlier last week.
It has also been reported that Sailesi will be earning K1.4 million in monthly salary and he is also expected to receive K6 million in signing on fee.
The former Blantyre United winger was a marvel to watch in all three games he featured for the Malawi national team, before the Flames were booted out after failing to register not even a single victory.
Having loaned out Dave Ng’ambi to Masters Security this year, Bullets will likely feel the pinch of losing one of their key player as the season has now reached its boiling point.
