Jamaica national senior team midfielder Chevone 'Messi' Marsh is likely to finish the Red Stripe Premier League (RSPL) season at Cavalier SC, as he will not make a return to Kokkolan Palloveikot in the Finnish Ykkonen (Second Division).

Marsh was on loan but returned to Cavalier last summer with hopes of rejoining the Finnish side. However, that move collapsed as Marsh was not included in Kokkolan Palloveikot's squad for the season.

"In late December leading into January, I was expected to leave for Finland but my agent (Kevin Cowan) informed me that they emailed him that they sold out the club. Then staff and everybody had to leave and they paid out my contract. That is why I am still here," Marsh told Star Sports after Cavalier and Montego Bay United battled to a 0-0 draw on Thursday night at Stadium East.


"It is like a disappointment for me, to come back because the club was sold. It's just one of those days. There are talks, but nothing confirmed for another move as yet," he explained.

"I just got back from Turkey with the national team and reports are that me and my Cavalier teammate Alex Marshall were impressive. I am just going to stay with Cavalier until another move comes," Marsh added.

Since returning to Cavalier, Marsh who is the team's captain, has played a key role in leading the young guns to third position in the 12-team RSPL. Cavalier are on 39 points behind leaders Portmore United (53) and Arnett Gardens (44).

Marsh is Cavalier's top marksman on five goals so far this season.

The 23-year-old former Calabar High schoolboy star made his senior national team debut on October 7 last year against hosts Saudi Arabia.
