Croatian club Hajduk Split’s director Ivan Kepčija has bid farewell to Hamza Barry who leaves the side at end of the season.
Speculation has been bandied about the Gambian departing having failed to reach an agreement with his current employers over a revised contract.
‘We will, by all accounts, say goodbye to Hamza at the end of the season,’ Ivan Kepčija said over the weekend.
Talks over renewed terms have been staged without much coming of it amid reports Barry is headed for Hungary’s league where he’s believed to have reached a deal in principle with one of the moneybags there.
Last week, Croatian publication Slobodna chronicling the 25-year-old’s situation, gave a 99 percent rating to chances of the scorpion leaving on the basis he has not inked the dotted lines for a contract renewal.
And owing to the covid-19 rocking the globe’s economy, fifa has advised players whose deals are due be offered extended contracts until end of the football term.
And on those grounds Hamza will see out remainder of the season before leaving July this year instead of June when the Croatian Premier League would have drawn to a close.
Hajduk stand to lose considering they forked out first over 27,000,000 million Gambian dalasis to acquire the attacking player on loan in a deal rising to over 43 million dalasis from Cypriot side Limassol after signing him on a permanent basis.
