Kenyan international keeper Arnold Origi is in transfer talks with newly promoted Norwegian first division side [Adeccoligaen] Ullensaker/Kisa Il ahead of the 2012 season.
Origi is out of contract with his former third division club Moss FK and they’re unwilling to extend his contract due to financial constraints - they cannot match the offer in his last contract.
At the close of the 2011 season, Origi was loaned to top tier Tippeligaen side Fredrikstad FK where he featured in their last two matches of the season.
- Arnold is moving to Ull/Kisa, a newly promoted team to the Adeccoligaen. I would like to see him move to a club in the Tippeligaen (where he played the two last games of last season with Fredrikstad FK), but he's not got the chance so far, Moss team manager Tor Thodesen told futaa.com.
- More so, due to financial problems in the club we couldn’t afford to extend his contract as his qualities are above our league. We’ve released him freely since we couldn’t offer him the same salary as in his last contract. He’s good enough to play in the top level league in Norway, explained the manager.
-As we talk, the only player that we've extended his contract is John Muiruri; we've prolonged the contract with him for another two years now, revealed Thodesen.
still in talks
On contacting Origi, he said that nothing concrete has emerged yet as they are still negotiating with Ull/Kisa.
-My contract with Moss has expired and at the moment I have
been approached by Ull/Kisa. I’m still negotiating with them, If all goes on
well I might join them, said the Kenyan international keeper who has called time on his international career on health related grounds.
