AFC Leopards have missed out on a deal to sign star Tanzanian forward Eliud Ambokile, Goal can exclusively report.
Ambokile, who has scored 24 goals in the Tanzanian league over the past two seasons, transferred to South Africa's Black Leopards in January but is yet to make an appearance for the PSL club after failing to secure a work permit.
Thus the PSL side tried to loan the player to Kenya’s AFC Leopards and discussions have been going on through the week.
It is believed that the player had agreed to join coach Casa Mbungo's club for the months of April, May, and June but the talks broke down following a disagreement between the two teams over who will pay the player's Sh300, 000 monthly salary.
However, the club managed to re-sign Harambee Stars winger Paul Were (unattached) and Boniface Mukhekhe from Mount Kenya United on the final day of the transfer window on Monday night.
