Kalekwa clarifies Mieno Interest



Sofapaka president Elly Kalekwa has come out to clear the air over the much talked about potential move by midfielder and Kenya international Humphrey Ochieng Mieno to Tanzanian giants Azam.

The Congolese magnate admitted that the Tanzanian side have made an approach, but for a six-month loan deal with the option of buying the player outright.

“Azam wants him on a six-month loan from January of next year with the option of making the move permanent in June. That is what they told us but we are not so keen on taking him there on loan. If they are serious they have to discuss on a permanent deal. However, not all is done, we are still in talks with them and a breakthrough may be reached,” he said.

Kalekwa also revealed there a lot more is in the pipeline for the lanky midfielder in the off-season, with two trial stints planned in Europe.

“The boy is also scheduled to go for trials in Cyprus and Portugal thereafter. If a European move materialises then he will move to Europe. He has a number of options so we will only step in to help him get the best deal otherwise at the moment we don’t want him distracted as he plays for the national team. When he is done with Cecafa the talks will continue,” Kalekwa added.

The current coach at Azam, Stewart Hall, coached Mieno for a month at Sofapaka before returning to the Tanzanian side.
