Tusker close in on Wamalwa



Reigning Kenyan Premier League champions Tusker FC are set to announce the signing of former Karuturi defender Titus Wamalwa.

The flowermen have confirmed talks are at an advanced stage and that a deal is imminent.

According to Karuturi chairman David Omega, the Naivasha-based side are also looking to bolster their squad before the close of the transfer window.

“We are almost in full agreement with Tusker FC on our defender Titus Wamalwa who is set to cross over during the current transfer window,” said Omega.

“The talks have been in progress and it is now almost certain that he will be leaving us for Ruaraka ahead of the coming season.”

This will be the second major loss for the Flower Men after their experienced midfielder Kennedy Oduor was recently signed by 2009 league champions Sofapaka on a one-year contract.

There are likely to be more departures from the side, with the chairman also confirming that newly promoted coastal outfit Bandari FC are also after another midfielder, formerly with Sony Sugar, in the shape of Victor Majid.

“Majid is in their radar but we are also yet to confirm and if all goes well then he may be joining the side in January,” said Omega.

Karuturi are on the lookout for replacements, and have already made five signings from their recently held trials in Naivasha, while they have recruited Ugandan import Ahmed Bulega from Victoria University FC.
