No big name signings for Stima



Newly appointed Western Stima coach Francis Baraza has revealed that the Kakamega-based side will not make any major signings in the on-going January transfer window.

Ahead of the 2013 Kenyan Premier League season, the powermen have lost five of their key players to their rivals, but the former Sony Sugar and Harambee Stars coach says he will go in the market with an aim of reinforcing the team and not replacing those who left.

The duo of Ali Bai and Alloys Mangi has joined Bandari, Justine Monda moved to Tusker, Jackson Saleh to AFC Leopards, while defender David Otieno has signed for Gor Mahia.

According to Baraza, who replaced Henry Omino a week ago, there is no need to bring in big players as he already has a 25-man squad at his disposal.

“We already have a team in place. Maybe we will just add five players to make it 30, but I am in no hurry or pressure to hire big names as replacements for those who left,” he said.

“I think most of the players did not get a chance to impress last season, so, I will give them an opportunity to redeem themselves before making any other move.

“It is a new season and everyone will get a chance to prove his worthiness. There are two-three players I have already identified and if all goes on well they might join us. Some new players are training with us, I will assess and decide what to do.”
