Thika United captain Dennis Odhiambo has demanded to leave the club.

Odhiambo has slapped the struggling club with a transfer request with ten days remaining to the close of June transfer window. “Enough is enough. I have persevered for long and it is time for me to get a new challenge.

“The club has refused to pay my salary that has accrued for four months and I am not in a position to stay here any longer.

"I gave them a letter on Monday and I am now waiting for the response. I want to get a new team before the window shuts down,” Odhiambo told Goal on Wednesday.

Thika have already lost two key players this transfer window – Saad Juma and Eugine Mukangula – both signing for AFC Leopards.
