The KPL new boys are aiming to boosting the midfield with top-tier experience, which will help the team have an easier ride in the KPL.

Despite reports linking Sony Sugar attacker Otenga to Gor Mahia, Wazito are not about to give up and have increased their bid in order to lure the striker into the team.

Otanga scored 13 goals for the Sugar Millers last season, which helped the team secure a top five finish.
