Flames regular Frank Banda has recovered from a knee injury and has been included on a trip to South Africa by his Mozambican side Club Costa de Sol.
Banda was sidelined for two weeks, but the technical panel has included him in the travelling party after assessing his fitness.
Costa de Sol are expected to camp in South Africa for a fortnight as part of their pre-season preparation.
“It is a great relief for me and as now I will be able to train with the full squad and that will give me an opportunity to train well so I can be picked up for first team football. It is important that I impress first time so I can play regular football,” said Banda in an interview from South Africa.
Banda and Charles Swini joined the Mozambican club in December on year-long contracts and both players have been included in the squad.
In a related development, Silver Strikers have announced that they are yet to conclude deals with Timothy Chitedze, Victor Limbani and Tizgobere Kumwenda.
Chitedze has already started training with Silver whereas the other two players are with Big Bullets.
“The contracts for all the entire players end in April. We are discussing with Lawson Nakoma on the way forward. It is tricky, but we are confident that we will sign the players. It is important that we beef up the team,” said Silver Strikers treasurer Fred Kalonga.
But he could not say how much Blantyre United have charged them for the three players.
“It is something I cannot say until a concrete deal is reached then with the blessing of the executive committee, I will be able to tell as to how much each player is worth. Since these players were contracted on loan to other teams, it is not right to disclose the figures because it might give other teams bargaining power,” said Kalonga.
