Okwuosa hints at possible departure from Chippa


Chippa United captain, James Okwuosa, has hinted that he may be leaving the club at the end of June when his contract expires.

The Nigerian-born is already claiming his rights to signing a pre-contract deal with another club at the end of the season, after his current contract with the Port Elizabeth-based side has not seen a renewal for his stay.

“My contract will be expiring at the end of June and for now the club hasn’t approached me with regards to talking about a new deal,” said Okwuosa to KickOff.

“I think I have done enough for the club and I think I have to make a big decision now about seeking greener pastures,” he added.

The 25-year-old holds the record for the most starts in Chippa’s three-year history in the PSL with 71 caps to his name. He is currently into his fourth season with the Chilli Boys, three of which he spent representing in the aforementioned PSL and the other in the First Division.

“There has been interest in my services from other clubs, but those are all issues that are being handled by my manager. My focus is to play football and give my best to my employers at all times,” hinted Okwuosa.
