Silver Strikers have turned down offers from South American clubs for forwards Michael Teteh and Duncan Nyoni because they did not match their transfer fee evaluation.
The clubs are Paraguay’s top league outfit Sol de America who are interested in Ghanaian Tetteh and an undisclosed Barbados side which has its eyes on Nyoni.
Barbados is an island country in the Caribbean Sea and a member of British Commonwealth.
Silver general secretary Lawrence Yobe in an interview yesterday said the broker of the deals, South African agent Lucas Adams, offered $10 000 (K7.5 million) for each player.
He said Silver demanded $20 000 (about K15 million) for each.
Yobe also said the bids have come at a wrong time as the transfers would disrupt their season which has just started.
In an interview, Adams said the clubs were looking for an outright transfer and described the deals collapse as disappointing.
“If we had reached an agreement the players were travelling straight to the respective clubs,” he said.
The agent, however, ruled out the possibility of the clubs coming back with improved offers.
“We still have issues with the amount that the club wants so I will not be going ahead with the deal,” he said.
In an interview Teteh said he was planning to meet the Silver leadership to discuss the matter.
“I have just been briefed by Lucas that an offer has been turned down. I will meet the general secretary and try to map the way forward. Otherwise, I am interested to play in Paraguay,” he said.
