Kinje Leopards' deal breaks down



AFC Leopards failed to strike a deal that would have seen playmaker Salim Kinje return to the den.

Close sources at AFC Leopards intimated to supersport.com that they had requested Tanzanian giants Simba to have the player come back to Kenya after failing to command a first team place but things went awry when Simba asked for Allan Wanga as part of the deal.

"We really wanted to have Kinje back to the den but Simba insisted we had to give them our striker Allan Wanga to facilitate the deal which we felt was impossible at this moment," the source told supersport.com.

Kinje was the cog in Leopards’ midfield before making a move across the border to Simba where he has been used as a fringe player which has led to him seeking a move back to Kenya.
