Tusker in talks with Arita

Kenyan Premier League champions Tusker are in talks with Thika United over the possible signing of striker Moses Arita.

The Kenya international has one month left on his current contract and according to the club’s official website, the former Sony Sugar hitman is reluctant to pen an extension, as he seemingly explores his career options.

Arita scored ten goals in the first half of the 2011 campaign and he had been tipped for the golden boot award but missed it after his controversial move to Albanian side KF Tirana in the mid-season transfer window.

He later re-joined the club, scoring six goals in the just concluded season as Thika finished fifth in the standings with 46 points from 30 games – 14 points short of Tusker.

Speaking to the clubs official website, team manager George Maina said they are ready to release the player and that negotiations between the two parties are already at an advanced stage.

“Talks between the two clubs are at an advanced stage, and we as a club cannot stand in the way of a player if he wants to move on,” said Maina.

“If anyone is seriously interested with him let them be courteous enough and follow the right channels.”
