AFC Leopards have confirmed Trevor Morgan will take over coaching of the side replacing James Nandwa, who was sacked.

secretary general George Aladwa has exclusively revealed that the Briton has signed a one year deal but he is not expected to take over until June as he has asked for permission to consider another offer he has in Spain.

According to Aladwa, they have agreed in principle to look elsewhere should Morgan fail to take over the post. "We open to talking to other coaches should he not be available to take up the offer," he told Goal.

Aladwa in the meantime, said Abdalla Juma continues to handle the team. "We will give him time and wait to see if the deal in Spain goes through. We hope it won't because we need him at the den."

Speaking to Goal on Wednesday after watching AFC Leopards’ held 1-1 by Kenya Commercial Bank (KCB) in a KPL Top 8 match, Morgan said he was prepared to help Ingwe  reclaim lost glory.

Morgan admitted that AFC Leopards' has very talented players, who can perform at top level with proper training. “AFC Leopards’ have very good players, who are talented and they pass the ball really well. I think they are just lacking that final cutting edge and I believe I can get that passed to them.”

He revealed it was his first time to apply for a job in Africa and was looking forward to working in Kenya. “Africa is a good place and I am looking forward to an exciting time here. Kenya is a good country, very friendly people and very talented footballers. If I get the chance I am looking forward to this great adventure.”
