Oliech set for Auxerre exit

Former Harambee Stars' skipper Dennis Oliech is set to leave his club after they were relegated from Ligue 1.

The former Nantes FC striker had said in his facebook post in April that one of the reasons he was quitting the national team was because his agent had arranged trials for him in June.

The hitman retired from international football following a row with team sponsors EABL over the use of his image in his official letter to Football Kenya Federation (FKF).

Reliable sources have told SuperSport.com that he will not play in France or Europe but he will move to the United Arab Emirates.

The former Mathare United player joined Auxerre on loan after his side Nantes was relegated in 2007 but was signed later by the club.

Oliech made his debut for Kenya in 2002 and scored the winning goal against Cape Verde to ensure Kenya qualified to the 2004 Africa Cup of Nations in 2004.

He is his club’s current top scorer with 10 goals.

Auxerre was officially relegated after they lost 3-0 to Marseille and they will host Montpellier who need only one point to lift first ligue 1 title.
