No transfer window extension

Super League of Malawi (Sulom) will not extend the transfer window for 2017 season despite the kick-off date being uncertain.

Sulom general secretary Williams Banda told The Nation on Wednesday that closing date for transfers still remains March 31.

The league was supposed to start on April 9, but it has been postponed indefinitely following the TNM’s sponsorship withdrawal.

“We are not extending the transfer window; it remains as stated, end of this month,” said Banda.

Clubs have since welcomed the development.

“As clubs, we are not much worried. We have identified all the players we wanted. We should be completing soon and we will meet the deadline, “said Muzu University (Mzuni) FC general secretary Khumbo Kumwenda.

Mighty Be Forward Wanderers general secretary Mike Butao said: “We are okay with that. The window has been open long enough. We are just looking forward to start of the season.”.

The league debutants, Masters Security FC general secretary Zacheous Nyirenda said despite that they are yet to come up with a final squad, they will meet the deadline.

Meanwhile, Sulom will not hold its annual general meeting (AGM) due to financial constraints.

Among other things, the assembly was expected to fill the post of vice-president vacated by Daud Suleman.

Suleman joined Football Association of Malawi (FAM) as executive member to fill the position vacated by Alfred Gunda who was appointed FAM general secretary in January.  n
