Blue Eagles football club has opened a new chapter of talks about midfielder Vitumbiko Kumwenda who disbanded the club to join Blantyre based Be forward Wanderers football club.
Kumwenda wrote the 2019 FISD challenge cup champions a resignation letter after they failed to negotiate a move for him to join the nomads. Eagles then wrote to football association of Malawi (FAM) seeking for legal intervention as they accused Wanderers of player tapping which is against the Regulations and Status on the Transfer of players set FAM as well as the world football governing body FIFA.
In it’s verdict over the case, FAM stated that the midfielder should report back to Eagles as he is still their player and also gave room for fresh negotiations between the club and Wanderers if they are still interested in buying the former Kabwafu FC midfielder.
Speaking in an interview, Blue Eagles football club general secretary William Nkhoma confirmed being in talks with Kumwenda who is opting to compensate the club to push for his exit after spending five years at the club.
“We had a meeting with Kumwenda and his agent but in the end we told them to go back and put in writing what they want so that as a club we should have a copy of it and see what the next action will be. The player is asking to compensate eagles for the remaining part of his contract as he wants to move out of the club”, said Nkhoma.
Before the verdict which has forced Kumwenda back to area 30, he had already signed a three years contract with Wanderers.
