Leopards close in on Ongoma



AFC Leopards could soon seal a deal for midfielder Bernard Ongoma as they seek to reinforce their squad ahead of the 2013 season.

Ongoma, a former Kolongolo FC star in the Western Provincial League has been training with the first tier side for the better part of the pre-season and the club has now given a strong indicator that they could sign him.

The third tier side’s patron Kizito Namulanda has confirmed that the club has indicated readiness to talk to them after he had raised concern with Ingwe’s ignorance of the procedure.

He, however, says that the club is ready to offer a release letter if the procedure is followed to get the talented midfielder.

“The club has finally contacted us and we could soon be heading to the table for the final talks for the transfer of Ongoma,” he explained.

Namulanda had raised concern after the player started training with Leopards, without notifying the Division One side.

Ongoma has been instrumental to the development of his side in both in the Division One League and the Obama Cup, where they emerged champions in the 2011/12 season.

The club also qualified for the finals of this year’s edition but he could fail to take part if both clubs agree on his transfer before the end of the current transfer window. This is after the finals were moved to April 2013 meaning that the Kenyan Premier League will have already started.
