from Petro Atletico has collapsed after the two clubs disagreed on
the transfer fee.
According to Wanga, who spoke to Kenyan paper The Standard, Champions
League contenders Pyunik were willing to offer â~B¬250,000 for his
signature but his employers, the Angolan champions, insisted on
squeezing â~B¬350,000 from the Armenian champions.
"Pyunik FC have officially given up signing me after my club declined
the offer. I really wanted to play in Europe but I hope now my time
could come another day," he said.
The 2007 Kenya Premier League top scorer moved from Tusker FC to
Petro in 2008 in a transfer deal worth â~B¬40,000.
The striker has since been a revelation for the Angolan champions,
who, as expected, were unwilling to release him unless their asking
price was honoured.
