Kariobangi Sharks attacking midfielder Duke Abuya has reportedly signed for Yanga of Tanzania.

Abuya is said to have signed a two-year deal with the Tanzanian giants and is expected to land in Dar es Salaam to be unveiled officially.

According to Global Publishers, Abuya has agreed on contractual terms with Yanga’s coach Zahera Mwinyi and is alleged to be ready to serve the former Tanzanian champions in the next two seasons.

“Abuya has agreed with (Zahera) Mwinyi to join Yanga for the next two years and will be part of the team for the next season. Abuya is a good player who scored against us when Kariobangi Sharks defeated Yanga in this year’s Super Cup Competition,” a source privy to the development told Global Publishers.

Abuya was the hero as he scored twice when Kenya’s Sharks eliminated Yanga with a 3-2 scoreline to book their semi-final slot in the Super Cup tournament held in Tanzania in 2018.

Kariobangi Sharks went on to win the Cup after beating fellow Kenyan Premier League (KPL) rivals Bandari 1-0 in the final.

Abuya has scored two goals for Kariobangi Sharks in the league so far.

Earlier reports had indicated that Mwinyi is also interested in signing Harambee Stars and Bandari goalkeeper Farouk Shikhalo alongside Abuya’s club teammate Harrison Mwendwa.

Yanga have won the Tanzanian league 27 times and are currently on top of the Tanzanian league table with 77 points from 33 matches.
