AFC Leopards midfielder Whyvonne Isuza says there has not been any transfer approach from any club amid speculation linking him away from the Kenyan Premier League (KPL) giants.

The Kenyan international however failed to fully commit his future to Leopards, saying he would be open to a move away is the right offer is tabled in January.

Leopards are enduring dire financial challenges with players and the technical staff forced to go close to five months without pay, a situation that has reportedly pushed head coach Casa Mbungo on the brink of quitting.

“For now I cannot confirm but will wait until the window opens in a few days to come. That is when I will have the clear picture of whether I’m leaving or will be remaining.

“It is has nothing to do with sponsorship but will be about greener pastures which is a dream for every player,” Isuza said.

Asked whether he is being courted by Zambian giants Zesco FC and Nkana FC, the Leopards star sharply denied it.

Izusa was in Uganda on CECAFA Senior Challenge duty with the national team and last featured for Leopards on 30th November in a 2-2 draw against Nzoia Sugar.

Leopards have lost four foreign players this year; Malian Ismailla Diara, Burundian Tresor Ndikumana, Vincent Habamahoro and Soter Kayumba both from Rwanda after they terminated their contracts over unpaid salaries.

Prior to Christmas festivities, Leopards players were each given Sh16,000 in holiday token as well as 80% of their monthly salaries.

Ingwe, ranked seventh on the KPL standings, will next play Zoo FC at Kenyatta Stadium in Machakos.
