Be Forward Wanderers say they have been approached by their want-away players—winger Jaffalie Chande and Blessings Tembo—over a possible return to Lali Lubani Road.
The Nomads’ chairperson Gift Mkandawire yesterday said they have been in touch with the two players.
Chande demanded to be released by the Nomads at the start of the season when he still had a year remaining on his contract, a move that was turned down by the Nomads while Tembo ‘terminated’ his contract after Wanderers failed to pay him his signing-on fee within the agreed period.
“It is true, we have been in touch with both of them. But while Jaffalie wants to return on his own, he is coming up with some conditions which cannot work as he already has a running contract.
“Nevertheless, we have told him that he is free to comeback. The door is still open for him.
“Much as others have different views, but he is our son and is contracted to us,” he said.
On Tembo, Mkandawire said: “We have made it clear to him that we will not pay him his signing-on fee instantly because we do not have money readily available.
“The condition is that he will have to be patient and wait to be paid alongside some of the players whom we also owe signing-on fees. So, in a nutshell, that is what we have told them.”
Chande could not be reached for comment yesterday while Tembo said he will come up with a clear position by this weekend.
The development on Tembo comes barely a week after Silver Strikers turned down his request to return to the club.
