Harambee Stars and Tusker FC defender David 'Cheche' Ochieng has renewed his contract at the Kenyan Premier League champions after his move to a top Scandinavian side fell through.
The player had initially signed a contract with an agent to join the Scandinavian side but changed his mind opting to pen a new two year deal with the brewers.
Sources in Tusker told Goal on Wednesday that the defender was forced to terminate his contract with the unidentified club after realizing that the deal was not as lucrative as he had thought.
Apparently Ochieng’s contract at Tusker ran out this month and he was not willing to renew it after he was approached by an agent who convinced him to ditch Tusker and take the new offer.
Ochieng' was willing to do that but on second thoughts and after reading finer details of the contract, approached Tusker indicating his unwillingness to go ahead with the deal but requested his club to help him get out of the quagmire.
"Ochieng was not happy with the deal he was offered and he approached us requesting for help to get out of it and he has now agreed to sign a fresh two year deal with us.
"We will do our best to help him and even ask Football Kenya Federation (FKF) on how to deal with the issue," said the source, who declined to be named due to the sensitivity of the matter.
Ochieng has been a key player in the Tusker and Stars defense after emerging on the scene less than one year ago.
