Kongsvinger confirmed the acquisition of the former Kenya One after the club was left with a shortage in goalkeeping area

Former Harambee Stars goalkeeper Arnold Origi has joined the Norwegian second division side Kongsvinger IL Toppfotball.

Origi, who ended his five-year stay with another Norwegian side, Lillestrøm early in the year, signed a short deal with Kongsvinger from Sandness Ulf.

Kongsvinger confirmed the acquisition of the former Kenya One after the club was left with a shortage in the department.

Kongsvinger custodian Aleksey Gorodovoy picked an injury nine days ago, forcing the management to go for the services of Origi to remedy the situation.

"When the situation has become as it has been with Aleksey, we do not want to take any chances. We must have two keepers.

"Origi is a very, very good keeper. I know him well from the time in Lillestrøm and he has a long time in Norwegian football. We know what we are getting and we are very pleased to get this solution in place," KIL-boss Espen Nystuen told the club portal.
