Bosso close in on Chicken Inn’s Phiri

DEFENSIVE midfielder Danny Phiri wants out of Chicken Inn as Highlanders are closely monitoring the situation.
The defensive link-man who was one of the Warriors best performers at the Chan tournament still has a year to go on his Chicken Inn contract.
A US$50,000 price tag has been placed on him though Highlanders are said to be prepared to part ways with only US$20,000 which is half of the asking price.
South Africa’s Pretoria University and Polokwane City are also said to be making moves for Phiri who expressed keenness to move away from Chicken Inn.
“I want to move to Highlanders but these guys (Chicken Inn) will not let me. I will have to wait for my agent (Fortune Chisale) to arrive from South Africa and see what happens next,” Phiri said.
He however started training with Chicken Inn on Monday which was the first time since his return from Chan.
Highlanders chairman Peter Dube said they are still hopeful of landing Phiri and are talking to Chicken Inn.
“We have opened talks with Chicken Inn but nothing has materialised so far. The player has said he wants to come here so we are just trying to have him here,” Dube said.
Highlanders have become the most active team on the transfer market this preseason eight high-profile players so far including Kuda Mahachi and Charles Sibanda.Advertisement
