Sofapaka swoop for Oduor



The 2009 Kenyan Premier League champions Sofapaka have made a swoop for Karuturi Sport FC’s offensive midfielder Kennedy Oduor, as the Nairobi side continues to rebuild for the 2013 season.

Oduor, who made a name for himself while at Tusker FC, confirmed the news. He believes it is a move in the right direction after an unfortunate season in Naivasha in 2012, where he had to sit out with injury as his team slipped to a 12th placed finish.

The lanky Oduor, who is the first major signing for Sofapaka in the December/January transfer period, said he had settled on a three-year deal with the church sponsored side, and is confident that he will grow as a player during his time in the capital.

“On Monday we reached a deal with Sofapaka so I will be leaving Karuturi Sport after I clear with them. I have not signed yet but we agreed on a deal for three seasons, which I think is good for me as a player. It is a right move at the right time for me,” said Oduor.

“I will be a free agent at the end of the year and with this deal I will be looking to take my football career to the next level.”

Oduor scored one goal for Karuturi Sport in the 2012 season, and at Sofapaka he will be expected to help offset the recent departure of attacking duo John Onami and Robert Binja.
