Mwendwa ponders Mathare United future

18 November 2014, 12:46

Nairobi - Harrison Mwendwa has confirmed that options to play for a different club, next season, have presented themselves.

Mwendwa, who currently plies his trade at Mathare United, said that he had been approached by several of the top teams in the Premier League, adding that he was tempted to make the career move.

However, he was also reluctant to divulge any more details on the matter, as there had not been any negotiations with these clubs just yet. The player was loath to say anything that would hamper any contract negotiations that might emerge from this.

"It's true there have been several offers from a number of top teams which I will not mention at the moment but I am yet to negotiate with one," Mwendwa told Futaa.com.

"I am weighing my options before falling for any deal," added the Mathare United star.

He also confirmed that there was still the distinct possibility that he would remain at the club which has served him so well. Mathare finished the Kenya Premier League season in the ninth position and during the business end of the season there were indications that this team could become a force in Kenyan football next season.

The idea of being a part of the transformation at the club is tempting for Mwendwa.

"However, personally, I would rather stick at Mathare United for another season to hit my targets because they have played a crucial role in my career."

"My guardian is partly involved in each and every process concerning transfers and I have no hurry as a move comes with various challenges. I wouldn't prefer joining a club where I will struggle to get playtime like the kind I am having at Mathare United."

Among the names of clubs that have been bandied about during this post-season period are Gor Mahia and AFC Leopards - both of whom are giants in Kenyan football.
