2008 Kenyan Premier League champions Mathare United will sign up to four players in this transfer window before calling it a day.

The ‘slum boys’ signed 17 players last season but still managed to finish in a favourable position, with the likes of Muhoroni Youth and Western Stima going down.

Head coach Francis Kimanzi says the training session is intense right now and he wants to ensure the boys are in the best shape before the season kicks-off.

“Well, right now we are working hard on shaping the team before we set our realistic target before the season starts. We will sign four more players before the start of the season, striking department is top in the pecking order as well as our defense.

“The response is good by the players considering it is just but our second week in training,” Kimanzi told Goal.
