Leopards close in on duo
Kenyan Premier League giants AFC Leopards are closing in on the signatures of Western Stima defender Jackson Saleh and Mathare United goalkeeper Martin Musalia ahead of the 2013 season.
The duo have been heavily linked with a move to the den since the transfer window opened on Saturday.
Leopards have agreed with the two clubs – Mathare and Stima – over a possible move of the pair, and according to organising secretary Timothy Lilumbi, the two players will each sign a two-year contract.
“We have discussed with Mathare and Stima. Both of them have agreed to release the players,” said Lilumbi.
“It is just a matter of time before the deals will be sealed. We are still discussing personal terms with the players. But as far as I am concerned they are already our players and they will play for us next season.”
“They are quality players and I believe they will play a vital role in our team. After agreeing on terms with them, they will pen down a two-year deal each.”
Lilumbi also confirmed the club are in talks with other players. “Yes, we are in talks with a couple of players but we cannot reveal their names because nothing has been agreed yet.”
