Leopards join Kiongera hunt



KCB midfielder Paul Mungai Kiongera is on the verge of parting company with the Ruaraka-based side after a successful 2012 season.

And with Kenyan Premier League giants Gor Mahia earlier establishing themselves as the frontrunners to seal his signature, AFC Leopards have also joined the race for the coveted midfielder.

Kiongera was spotted at the Leopards offices on Thursday and he confirmed that apart from Gor Mahia, he is also in contact with the 13-time league champions.

The player’s contract at the Bankers is set to run out in June 2014, so he added that any suitor will have to get consent from his current employers if they wish to conclude a deal.

“Things are not looking bad so far. I am at the moment in talks with both Gor Mahia FC and AFC Leopards. It is also important to note that this all is not just about me as a player. The team I will settle on will also have to clear with my current club, KCB,” said Kiongera.

“As of now, we have not agreed on anything but I am open and ready to join any of the two teams that will show a real desire to have me and also which will have the best terms and will guarantee me a role in the team. In short, just like any player would do, I am eyeing success,” he added.

Kiongera was the bankers’ top scorer in 2012, netting 11 times as KCB finished 10th in the standings.
