Striker Edwin Lavatsa has revealed the reason why he left Bandari for Tusker FC.

Lavatsa, who finished a distant 10th with Bandari last season, four behind Tusker, said that the allure to earn his place back in Harambee Stars was a major driving factor why he shifted work station from Mombasa to the capital city.

Speaking moments after he was unveiled by Tusker alongside 10 other players, Lavatsa said: "In the position that we finished (with Bandari), it was not easy to be called to the national team. That is why I decided to join Tusker."

Lavatsa joined the immediate former champions on a three-year deal this January and he hopes to attract the attention of Harambee Stars head coach Paul Put for a first call-up since 2014.

Tusker brought in Apollo Otieno (Chemelil Sugar), Timothy Otieno (Gor Mahia), Peter Nzuki (Nakumatt), Edwin Lavatsa (Bandari), Bonventure Khasabuli (Muhoroni Youth), Mathew Tayo Odongo (Kariobangi Sharks), Lawrence Kasadha (KCCA-Uganda), Robert Achema (Western Stima), Amos Asembeka (Sony Sugar) and Erick Ambunya (Kakamega Homeboyz) to fill the void left by 14 players released last December.
