Homeboyz close in on Mwangi



Kenyan Premier League (KPL) newcomers Kakamega Homeboyz are close to landing former AFC Leopards midfielder Samuel Misse Mwangi.

The promoted outfit are looking for experienced players to aid them in their maiden campaign in the top flight.

They have already signed six players to this end with the likes of Wellington Murwayi, John Waw, Elly Otuoma committing themselves to the club.

Misse has been training with the Kakamega-based side in the last couple of weeks and the club bosses are happy with what they have seen. Head coach Fred Serenge says that they are looking to complete a deal very soon.

“We have been in training with Misse and are very impressed with what we have seen,” said Serenge.

“He is a classy passer of the ball and a creative force, just what we need at the club. Most important is that he has played in the Premier League which is what we are looking for.

“We are hopefully going to complete a deal for him by the end of the week. So far we have not agreed personal terms but we are confident that the player will agree with us.”

Homeboyz have several other players on trial and Serenge says they will make their selections shortly.

“We have other players here on trial and are looking at them,” said Serenge. “They are Premier League quality and we hope to have a clear direction on them soon.”

Homeboyz will kick off their season against AFC Leopards on Saturday 16 February.
