Kenyan Premier League champions Tusker FC have been sued by Henry Meja’s agent after failing to remit part of the player’s transfer fees to AIK.
A source who sought anonymity revealed to Pepeta that the agency, Atotos Sports, had a deal with Tusker over the transfer of their players to European clubs where they are entitled to part of the transfer fees.
Atotos have been responsible for helping Tusker sell two of their players this year with David Majak and Meja joining Swedish top-flight sides FF Kalmar and AIK respectively. While the source confirmed that the agency got money from Tukser for Majak, they are yet to be given their cut on Meja.
Meja earned Tusker a sum of KES 16.5M in the AIK deal but the club has been reluctant to remit what they owe the agency with the source revealing that the Kenyan giants will soon be defending their stance in court.
“Atotos was responsible for both deals and while they got money for Majak which wasn’t that much, Tusker has refused to remit the money on Meja. It is has given the agency no option but to take the matter to court as they see it as the only option left for them to get what they deserve,” the source said.
Meja officially signed with AIK in September 2021 but was loaned back to his team where he is expected to travel to Sweden in January.
