Wanga Al Nasr deal falls through



After spending four days in Oman with top-tier side Al-Nasr, Allan Wanga is making plans to return to Kenya, with the deal having not materialised.

Wanga had before his departure confirmed that they had worked out all the details of the deal with the club.

He was, however, to be disappointed after discovering that the club was only offering a two-and-a-half month deal – whilst he was anticipating a long-term deal.

Revealing the unfolding, AFC Leopards’ vice chairman Walter Onyino, who spoke with the player, also noted that the Omani club did not wish to pay for the transfer of the player, on the assumption that he was out contract.

“Wanga is still signed to us and Al-Nasr wanted him to cross on a free-transfer, believing he was a free agent. This, of course, was not acceptable to us. Besides, Wanga also indicated that the amount the team was offering him was not better than he was getting at AFC Leopards and that they only needed him for two months,” said Onyino.

“All these issues put together made the deal lose its appeal and I expect him (Wanga) to join us soon.”

Wanga joined the Leopards in January 2012 from Vietnamese side Hoang Anh Gia Lai (HAGL).
