Harambee Stars forward Michael Olunga has reportedly put pen to paper to extend his stay with Japanese league side Kashiwa Reysol for a year.

Last season, the 26-year-old scored 27 league goals as Reyson finished the J2 season as champions, winning promotion to the first division.

Olunga’s current contract at the club was wet to expire in January 2021 and should the club confirm the reports of the contract extension, it would temporarily end speculation that Olunga was headed out as a number of clubs are keen to acquire his services.

Former Sofapaka and Gor Mahia Ronald Okoth had earlier advised Olunga not to be in a hurry to leave Reysol even though he has already achieved a lot in Japan.

“Olunga has conquered the league and as a player, if you feel you want another challenge the best option is always to find another challenge in a different environment,” Okoth told Gold in an interview.

“But let us not lie to one another that the Japanese league is not competitive. Let us look at the progression of Olunga’s career and we can see he has the potential of performing in any league.

“He has performed in Japan and many see he is slightly above it and if I am asked he needs to seek another challenge.

“But again, one should not rush in making a decision that will have a great impact on his own career. If he gets a chance to join another league the better, but if it does not come he should remain where he is.”
