If news making its way to the Siya crew is anything to go by, Chippa United are set to lose their star defender James Okwuosa in January.
The 23-year-old central defender has been a vital cog in the Chilli Boys’ squad and was even linked with a possible move to Orlando Pirates last season, although nothing came of it. He is believed to want a bigger challenge in his career.
The crew previously reported that there were Turkish scouts set to watch in action for the national team against Italy in an international friendly last month, although it is not yet clear if he did make an impression. But what seems clear is that there is local and overseas interest in the player and it’s a matter of formal bids being put in for his services.
A source said, “Something is going to happen In January. There is definite interest. Chippa are also fighting for promotion, so they may want to keep him. You never know in football, but we’ll see.”
