The long standing transfer tussle involving Enock Agwanda and Kenya Premier League (KPL) club Sony Sugar shows no signs of ending anytime soon.
As exclusively reported by Goal.com last month, the stocky forward who represented Kenya during the 2012 Cecafa Senior Challenge Cup in Kampala ditched the Awendo-based side to join Sofapaka.
The move has however, hit a snag after his former employers blocked the transfer claiming he still has a valid contract.
"I am not sure what Sony Sugar are up to. Last term I tried to extend my stay with them (Sony) but they could not upgrade my contract. Now the officials don't want to give me a release letter. The league kick-off is around the corner, and I request them to do me justice."
"I have served Sony Sugar very well and I feel that it is time to move on and advance my career. I want to move to Sofapaka because it is great clubs that has very experienced players that can help me develop as a player."
Agwanda was on the terraces as he watched his new side fall 1-0 to visiting Tanzanian side Azam FC on Sunday. Azam got the only goal of the match in the 60th minute when Tanzanian international Gaudence Mwaikimba scored from a penalty following a handball by Ugandan midfielder Abdalla Nyanzi.
When contacted, Sony Sugar Team Manager Nehemiah Licha claimed Agwanda had dishonored a binding contract.
"This is a complicated case and I hope the boy will eventually make a good choice (return to the club). That is all I can say for now."
Sony Sugar will start their league campaign with a tricky fixture away to newly promoted Bandari on February 16 while Sofapaka host Mathare United at City Stadium a day later.
