Harambee Stars striker Michael Olunga has only three days left to decide his future, whether to force a move away from Guizhou Zhicheng or continue playing in the reserve team.

Olunga, who has since requested to be omitted from Harambee Stars squad for a friendly match against Mozambique on September 2, 2017, in Maputo, has not played a competitive match since June.

The Kenyan international was among the two players relegated to Guizhou Zhicheng reserve team following the newly enacted Chinese Super League Foreign Quota rule, which allows only three foreigners to be registered in the first team in any given season.

Guizhou Zhicheng had five foreign players in the squad, but Olunga now found himself a 'lonely' man after Egyptian, Aly Ghazal, who was also released to the reserve squad forced a move away.

Olunga was reportedly looking for a way out of China, but with the transfer deadline in major European leagues set to close this Thursday, his agents will have to work extra hard to force a deal away from Guizhou Zhicheng as he seeks to revive his once glittering career.

The lanky forward has been linked with another of clubs including his former club, Djurgardens IF of Sweden
