Do You Know How Much Kenyan Players Earn In Transfer Fees?

The transfer fee issue in Kenya has always been a hidden issue. Mostly when a players transfer is done it is not usually put in the open for all to know like it is common with other leagues abroad. In Kenya you would just hear a player has been signed by another team for some months and that would be it. No further details.

In this article we try to find out how much Kenyan players earn whenever they get a transfer. The transfer in Kenya usually depends on a lot of things. A players exposure, teams already played foe matter a lot. That said, the team they are coming from matters too. A player coming from a foreign league is likely to get a lot in transfer fee as compared to a player acquired from locally. For example, Gor Mahia is one of the clubs in Kenya that acquires players from outside. Players coming to play for them are likely to earn a lot.

The highest paid footballer in Kenyan history in recent past was Jacques Tuyisenge who used to bag upto 1.25 million monthly minus the allowances and bonus.

We can also remember Erick Masika who was acquired for 450,000 by AFC Leopards from Gor Mahia back then in transfer fee. That makes the average price for a top player transfer fee.

In most cases the fee is usually less than 100,000 if the player is local based. That also applies to players on contracts. However you might have realized that most players go out and sign to other clubs for free. For players without contracts, they get nothing in transfer fees.

That only tells you how the transfer business is not so much regarded in Kenya.
