Fresh from completing his Kenya Certificate of Secondary Education at Kisumu Day High School last month, Omalla is delighted at the opportunity of playing in Europe.
Speaking to the Standard Sports, the former Chapa Dimba All-Star striker said he can’t wait to wear the jersey of Linkoping and help the team avoid relegation.
Linkoping City is currently bottom of the Swedish Division One South table standings after losing all their opening matches of the 2021 season.
“I can’t describe how happy I am and I thank God for the opportunity,” said a jubilant Omalla.
“My goal is to help my team through scoring goals. I understand it is not going to be easy with the change of environment, culture and league but as an athlete, I always strive to give my best every time I stepped into the field.”
The former Western Stima signed a season-long loan deal with Linkoping City in March, though he is still a Gor Mahia player since he has a lengthy contract with the reigning champions.
Omalla has not featured prominently for Gor in the league this year as he was balancing his schoolwork ahead of his final examinations.
He featured for Gor in the CAF Champions League preliminary round against APR of Rwanda in December last year as K’Ogalo advanced to the first round.
