KPL June transfer window officially swings open

The June transfer window was to start on Wednesday but was postponed by Football Kenya Federation to the June 2

Kenyan Premier League's mid-season transfer window is now officially open to allow teams to adjust their squads ahead of second leg action.

The June transfer window was to start on Wednesday but was postponed by Football Kenya Federation because June 1 was a national holiday in Kenya. It will now stay open till the midnight of Saturday July 2. 

Clubs which should take the period seriously include Sofapaka, Nairobi City Stars, Thika United and AFC Leopards. Sofapaka, despite the fact that they are the 2009 KPL champions went through a rough first leg losing a whopping twelve matches with only two victories and are languishing at the bottom of the table.

AFC Leopards need to do something to match their arch-rivals Gor Mahia in terms of performance after collecting paltry points during the first leg. Coach Ivan Minnaert, with his entire ego, should bring on board players, who can help the team achieve their league dream now that money is not a big problem at the Den.
  
Up to now, a few moves have been made across the league while some players have remained free agents after parting ways with their former clubs. Ulinzi Stars midfielder John Jonte Nairuka has crossed to Posta Rangers while Western Stima winger Baron Oketch is almost completing a move to defending champions Gor Mahia.
 
Mathare United defender Noah Abich and Bandari striker Masoud Juma have both parted ways with their respective clubs while Tusker midfield maestro Humphrey Mieno is already linked to Gor Mahia. 

In January, during the pre-season transfer window, a total of 195 players were transferred with Gor Mahia emerging the biggest spender to a tune of Sh4.35 million. Rwandan Jacques Tuyisenge was the most expensive player.
