It is understood that Olunga's future with Chinese club Guizhou Zhicheng is now hanging in the balance after the arrival of Spanish duo Mario Suarez and Ruben Castro from Watford (England) and La Liga side Real Betis respectively.

The Gregorio Manzano-coached side has already struck out Olunga and Egyptian Aly Ghazal from the 40-man first team list and relegated them to the reserve squad.

Pressure is also mounting on Chinese football chiefs to change the foreign quota rule. The clubs can sign five foreigners but only three can start at any given time.

Kenya's newspaper Daily Nation now reports that Olunga's representatives are already working on securing a loan deal for the towering striker to the French Ligue 1, Belgian First Division A and a number of leagues within West Europe. “It’s true we are going to secure a loan move for him soon.

"The loan deal will be in Europe. We are getting closer to agreeing with Guizhou over the terms,” one of the player’s representatives, who sought anonymity, revealed on Friday.

The former Gor Mahia striker has barely stayed for half a season in China since making his Sh487 million move to Asia from Swedish outfit Djurgardens IF in January.
