National striker Andre Clennon says his agent has been in negotiations with a number of overseas clubs as he seeks a move away from Red Stripe Premier League (RSPL) club Humble Lion.

Clennon told STAR Sports that he has had a lot of interest from clubs in Asia, but the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic has slowed down these negotiations.

"The plan is to get back overseas and start playing again at the highest level," said Clennon.

"I am looking at Turkey, Iran, and Azerbaijan, and so those are the countries I am aiming at for now. Negotiations are ongoing with my agent with quite a few clubs in these countries."

The 30-year-old Clennon last played overseas in the 2018-2019 season when he represented Kelsa in the Azerbaijan Premier League. He netted four goals for the club in 26 appearances.

The former Bridgeport Manning Cup standout also spent the 2016-2017 season with Finland's second-division side Vaasan Palloseura.

The lanky striker underscored that the COVID 19 has affected him a geat deal because if it were not for the deadly virus, then he would have been playing overseas.

"I am very close to making a move, but because of the COVID-19 pandemic, most of the clubs overseas are holding tight on some of the signings as they are watching the budget," Clennon said.

"I am just keeping my fingers crossed that things will work out because it is always my dream to play overseas," he said.

Clennon, who netted five goals in the Premier League for Humble Lion last season, added that he has been working very hard to stay in shape ahead of a move overseas.

"I have been doing a lot of endurance running and strength work in order to stay in shape to ensure that whenever I sign with an overseas club, I will be fit and ready to go," he stated.
