The Burundian defender left champions Gor Mahia on Friday and already top clubs in Kenyan league are eyeing for his services

AFC Leopards are among the top Kenyan clubs keen to sign defender Karim Nizigiyimana.

The Burundian defender left champions Gor Mahia on Friday after both parties failed to agree on contractual terms. Nizigiyimana’s contract with K’Ogalo was due to end in January and that means he will be free to get a new team.

And a day after he left K’Ogalo, Goal now understands that a host of Kenyan clubs led by Ingwe have shown keen interest to get the services of the player. Others are Sofapaka, Tusker and Bandari.

The exit of Nizigiyimana means that the Kenyan champions have five foreigners - Rwandese Jacques Tuyisenge, Burundian Francis Mustafa, Uganda's Shafik Batambuze and Erisa Ssekisambu as well as Ivorian striker Ephrem Guikan.
