KCCA Football Club teenager Allan Jolly Okello will not leave the country until he has completed his A-level studies according his agent Issac Mwesigwa.

In a telephone interview, Mwesigwa told Kawowo Sports that Okello – a student at Kibuli Secondary School – still has a lot of time ahead of him to play professional football whereas the A-Level final examinations are just months away.

We shall consider any offers for Allan Okello after December 2017 when he has completed school.

The A-level examinations are just 5 months away.

Okello is without doubt the hottest football prospect in the country currently with a number of offers for the left footed creative midfielder on the table.

Mwesigwa was also quick to add that Okello has not yet agreed terms with any club like the media has widely reported.

“It is on record, we have not agreed with any club although the offers are overwhelming. He remains a KCCA player and will be registered for the 2017-18 season.”

Mwesigwa hinted on the clubs that have expressed interest in the youngster.

Like reported in the media, he confirmed interest from Mamelodi Sundowns, Ajax Amsterdam and Egyptian club Al Ahaly.

Media in Netherlands and South Africa had earlier reported that Okello’s representative had preferred Ajax Amsterdam to Mamelodi Sundowns.

Okello has previously played for the Northern Region in the U-17 Airtel Rising Stars football programme.

He was born and bred in Lira at Destiny Soccer Academy before he crossed over to Kibuli S.S.

KCCA recruited him to the Junior U-17 team before he graduated to the senior team, winning the domestic league.

He was impressive during the CAF Champions and Confederation cup matches for the reigning Uganda Premier League champions.
