City Stars confirm signings



Kenyan Premier League side Nairobi City Stars has completed the signing of nine new players as it boosts its squad ahead of the 2013 season.

Team head coach Bye Wadda has confirmed this and says that he believes the players would gel well with his current squad and form a formidable team that would perform well in upcoming season.

Jimmy Bageya, George Blackberry Odhiambo, Dennis Okoth, Harbert Kunga, Dennis Pajoe, Eric Muranda, Simon Lusaka (GK), Kevin Masawa and Oscar Mbugua were all successful in the City Stars trials and have been offered contracts.

“These are the players that impressed the technical bench in the trials and I strongly believe they will be successful this season,” the Gambian tactician said.

“Some of them are relatively young and inexperienced but very talented while the others are experienced players and I believe this will form a winning combination,” he added.

Bageya and Mbugua were previously with City Stars before joining AFC Leopards and Gor Mahia but were dropped by the clubs and have now made a return to the club that introduced them to the Kenyan Premier League.

Wadda has also confirmed that the club will add one more player to its ranks before the closure of the January transfer window.
