AFC Leopards to beef up squad before signing window closes tomorrow


AFC Leopards are set to sign a number of players in the closing stages of the transfer window set to close on Tuesday 2nd November 2021. They haven't been able to sign any players so far since serving a transfer ban imposed on them by FIFA after failing to pay their former players and coach. They now have hope since the ban is to be lifted as the club management agreed on a payment plan with the affected parties.

The players set to be signed as the club intends to beef up the squad include Levi's Opiyo, a former Wazito FC goalkeeper who is currently unattached after parting ways with the rich kids at the end of last season. He is expected to take the place of Benjamin Ochan, who moved to KCCA in Uganda. 



Musa Ouma, a former defensive midfielder for Mathare United and Chemelil Sugar FC, is also expected to join the Den, filling the void left by Tsuma Said's departure to Sofapaka.

Others being eyed include Kingsley Fasanmi, a Nigerian stisker who has formerly locally featured for Kakamega Homeboys and Soy United, former Kenya police forward Abraham Dawo, former Nzoia United winger Cliff Kasuti, former Sharks midfielder Sephan and ex-Kariobangi Sharks defender John Kuol.



Speaking to Mozzart Sport, a reliable source from the den confirmed, "that as the window closes on Tuesday, it means they really have a short time to close on the signing, but since they have played a number of matches, they have identified their weaknesses and already talked to the players they want to sign, so the club will be hoping that by the close of business tomorrow they will have done the signing."
