Goal understands Batoto ba Mungu have already held talks with Matasi and Chemelil keeper John Waw over a possible transfer

​Posta Rangers goalkeeper Patrick Matasi could join former Kenyan Premier League champions Sofapaka during the June transfer window.

​​Sofapaka are understood to be preparing to bolster their squad during the mid season window with Matasi among the top targets.

​​​Coach John Baraza made clear his intention to beef up the squad despite the side, making several signings last January that saw Stephen Waruru, Kepha Aswani, Teddy Osok, Kevin Kimani, Ellie Asieche, Mousa Omar and Ibrahim Kitawi brought into the ranks.

​​Though Baraza will have to make a final decision after the first round, talks have been on going with Matasi and Chemelil Sugar’s goalkeeper John W​aw being ​identified as potential targets.

​​Sofapaka officials ‘casted’ votes on who, between Waw and Matasi, is the best option to help cover for the Ugandan Mathias Kigonya​,​ and the die fell on Matasi.

​​“The club settled on Matasi but Waw ​is s​till in our plans if we don’t get to reach an agreement with the top target,” said a source from Sofapaka, who spoke exlusively to Goal.

​​Batoto Ba Mungu, who are sixth on the log with 21 points, will be in action against Zoo Kericho FC on Saturday.
