Clubs get down to business as transfer window opens

*Gunners, BMC wrangle over Ndoro
*Tshelametsi for GU

Exactly a week after the opening of the January transfer window, the Botswana Premier League (BPL) office has not facilitated any transfer of players let alone received a request for such. The BPL office, which will be open for business on January 10th (Thursday)  after the festive break, confirmed to Mmegi Sport yesterday that no team has put forward a request to register a new player. Some struggling clubs like bottom placed BR Highlanders, Mogoditshane Fighters and Prisons XI are expected to rope in some players to try and salvage their season.
Defending Champions, Mochudi Centre Chiefs and Coca-Cola Champions Gaborone United are also expected to add on to the quality they have as they prepare to compete in CAF Competitions.

Chiefs start their CAF Champions League campaign against Mozambican side Maxaquene in February, while GU will be up against another Mozambican side Liga Muculmana in the Confederations Cup still next month.Meanwhile the rumour mill is awash with possible transfer targets. Perhaps the most interesting and surprising is former Zebras' and Notwane goalkeeper Kagiso Tshelametsi's link to GU. Tshelametsi has been out of the game for many seasons after sustaining a near- career ending knee injury, but surprised many coming out of retirement at the beginning of the current season and looks set to be the number one choice at Palapye side Motlakase Power Dynamos.
