After snubbing AFC Leopards in the June transfer window, Kenyan international midfielder Peter Pinchez Opiyo is plotting a return to Europe before the summer transfer window closes.
Opiyo, who has previously featured for Gor Mahia and AFC Leopards in the local topflight, was heavily linked with a move to the den during the midseason break after Ivan Minnaert publicly announced that his team was short of quality in the middle of the park.
Alongside Musa Mudde, Bernard Mang’oli and Crispin Odula, Opiyo’s name was bandied around as one of the top midfielders on Ingwe’s radar though he deliberately refused to put pen to paper despite numerous efforts by the club's top brass to acquire his services.
In an interview with Soka, Opiyo revealed that plans are underway to get a new club abroad as he seeks to return to competitive action.
“I have been training with Thika United just to ensure that my fitness levels are up there. I am still waiting for communication from my agent because the transfer window in Europe is still open. I am hopeful of getting a good deal either in Africa or Europe,” Opiyo told Soka.
Opiyo has previously featured for Thika United and Tusker in the KPL. He has 27 caps for the Harambee Stars and was part of the team that won the CECAFA Senior Challenge Cup in 2013.
