Hamza Barry ‘Shuns’ Contract Offer as Club Contemplate Cashing in on Gambian


By Sulayman Bah

Gambia international Hamza barry has reportedly turned his back on inking the dotted lines that would see him stay put in Croatia.

With six months to end of his three seasons stay at Croatian Premier League side Hajduk Split, Barry, it’s believed, is no longer receptive to continuing a term there amid solid interest from Fehervar.

The development comes as a huge change of plans just about a season when the playmaker was touted with a massive move to the English premier League with Everton understood to be admirers.

Formerly of Gambia Ports Authority, Barry switched to Hajduk on a fee in the region of €800,000.

There were initially no hints of negotiations taking place before the dynamics changed a bit with Hajduk slapping a proposal to the playmaker.

However, it appears the scorpion has resolved to leaving at end of his deal June this year.
Before then, his current employers have option of cashing in on him to avoid losing him on a free transfer.

Split are tipped to rake up at least €250,000 with the other €250,000 going to Cypriot’s Appolon Limassol who reportedly have a stake in any future sale of the attacking midfielder.

Hamza is an invaluable for Hajduk and his departure leaves a void.
