Kenyans will be having their own playing in the English Premier League from next season that will be starting in August 14th. Victor Wanyama was the first after his sensational move from Celtic to Southampton several years ago.
Another Kenyan to be part of the history will be Henry Oliver Ochieng' who currently plays for Watford - a championship team that got direct promotion after a year in the second tier.
The 22-year-old was signed by Watford this year after his stellar performance with his previous team Cork City. The marquee midfielder has also featured for Braintree Town, Leyton Town among others.
He was first called to the national team in 2018 when Harambee Stars were playing against Sierra Leon in AFCON qualifiers. However, the match didn't play and the English born was forced to feature for the U-23 national side.
Ochieng' will be a great addition to the Jacob 'Ghost' Mulee led side which currently boast of experienced midfielders like Lawrence Juma and Kenneth Muguna.
