Tanzanian giants Simba SC have initiated contract extension talks with Kenyan international Joash Onyango amid growing interest from PSL side Orlando Pirates.
As first reported by Mwanaspoti, the Simba leadership led by CEO Barbara Gonzalez has approached Onyango’s camp for talks on a new deal.
“We have already reached out to Onyango and his agent that we would like to extend his contract which will begin once the initial two-year deal ends,” said Gonzalez as quoted by Mwanaspoti.
“The current contract was to end when the next season concludes, but the new one will see him stay with us until 2024”.
“We have decided to make our wish to extend the contract given how Onyango has performed since he joined us. We need him because we understand how Simba would critically need his services. We also need him to sign so that if anyone comes on board to table his wish to sign Onyango, we will enter into negotiations knowing already he has a new deal for a further two years”.
Joash has been in great form since signing for the ‘Wekundu wa Msimbazi’ with his performances in the Premier League and the CAF Champions league earning him plaudits from fans and pundits.
In April, he was voted Simba SC’s player of the month. The former Gor Mahia man saw off competition from goal keeper Aisha Manula and midfielder Luis Miquissone to bag the award.
