AFC Leopards have completed the signing of speedy winger Paul Were, and midfielder Boniface Mukhekhe.

Mukhekhe signed from Mount Kenya United and has penned a deal that will see him spend his next two years at the Den.

Were, who is making a return to AFC Leopards, has also been confirmed as a new signing but details of his contract were not immediately confirmed by Ingwe.

"AFC Leopards is pleased to announce the signing Boniface Wafula Mukhekhe from Mt.Kenya United on a two-year contract." Leopards said in a statement that appeared on their Facebook page.

After leading AFC Leopards past Chemelil Sugar, coach Andre Casa Mbungo had lamented the thin squad at his disposal and urged the officials to increase the squad depth if they are to compete with top Kenya Premier League (KPL) rivals.

“We lack depth, unlike the teams that are top of the table and this should be an area of concern going forward. Leopards are a big club and need more players in order to challenge for big things," Mbungo said at Kenyatta stadium.

"For now, I have like just 18 players and that means I cannot rotate the players and allow the rest to take a break. It is a challenge and I hope it will be resolved. You know that fatigue leads to a lapse of concentration and that can cost a club a number of matches."

Soter Kayumba, Ivan Sekazza, and Shami Kibwana was signed earlier in the ongoing transfer window as Leopards continue to strengthen.
