AFC Leopards have come out as the favorite club to land former Sofapaka keeper Mathias Kigonya.

The Ugandan custodian parted ways with Batoto ba Mungu last week with a few months remaining on his contract. Kigonya confirmed to Goal in an exclusive interview that he had ditched Sofapaka owing to ‘personal issues’ and is now open to offers from clubs in Kenya and even abroad.

“It is true that I have left Sofapaka. It was on mutual agreement and now that I have six months remaining on my contract, the club has asked that I can leave if and when I get a new team.”

Goal now understands that Ingwe, who are in the market to sign a keeper, are keen to sign the Ugandan, who scored a couple of goals for Sofapaka from the penalty spot last season.

“Kigonya is a player we would like to have in our team and are already talking. We hope the deal is sealed before the season kicks-off,” a top Ingwe official, who did not want to be named, told Goal.

AFC Leopards were also eying Tusker keeper Patrick Matasi, who is now set to sign for Ethiopian club St. Georges.
