Thika in the hunt for Kingatua
Kenyan Premier League (KPL) side Nairobi City Stars could well have seen their final days with Kenya U20 international David Kingatua with all signs indicating that he is headed to the exit door.
Thika United is said to be his next destination as from the 2013 season, and though his club coach Bye Wadda says he is still unsure of where the player’s heart is after receiving mixed signals from the midfielder, he admits interest from the Thika side has been registered.
Wadda says he is unsure of the player’s feeling because he (the player) has been attending the team’s training sessions after the completion of the 2012 season, as well as showing desire to stay, but he admitted there is little he could do if the player’s wish was to leave.
“I have heard of the interest in him and even approach from Thika United and he is a great player so I am not surprised that a big team is after him. Nothing has moved at the moment and he even showed up for training twice or thrice after the season and expressed interest that he wants to stay,” he said.
“However, this far I can’t say I am too sure of what he feels but time will tell; we will not object to his desires whatsoever.”
The player has been City Stars’ midfield cog last season, though with the club cash strapped, it is a high possibility that he will leave,” he added.
