Tusker keen on Dunga

Kenyan Premier League champions Tusker FC have approached Sony Sugar in a bid to sign their in demand forward, Ismael ‘Manucho’ Dunga.

Confirming the news, Sony Sugar chairman, Chris Odero, said officials from the Ruaraka-based club have directly talked to the club but no conclusive agreement has been reached as yet.

“Tusker wants to sign Dunga and they approached us last week on Thursday. Nothing was agreed upon and we told them to table an offer for us so that we can discuss. I think they’ll do that this week,” Odero said.

“Dunga is contracted with us until next year June so he is still our player and we are not worried about losing him. Let all the clubs interested in signing him talk directly to us.

“He is a very talented player whom we’d love to keep in the club for as long as possible but then again we cannot clutch on a player whose heart is not with us and wants to play elsewhere,” he added.

Dunga, who is a former Congo United and Mathare United player, was Sony’s top scorer in the 2012 season, having netted eight goals to help the club finish 11th on the table with 38 points from 30 matches.
