Tanzanian Premier League champions, Young Africans (Yanga), have confirmed that they have completed the transfer of defender George Owino to German second tier club, Fortuna Dusseldorf.
Yanga secretary general Lucas
Kisasa told The Daily News in Dar es Salaam that the Kenyan international
excelled in his brief trials with the German club. However, he declined
to reveal the fee, calling it a “club secret".
The official said the funds
from the transfer would help cover some of the costs the club incurred
in this season's league, revealing that the club has spent over Ush500m
(€280,000) on new player transfers alone.
The Kenyan international joined
Yanga last season from arch-rivals Simba, but defender got the
opportunity to pursue his career at German club after he was recommended
by Kenyan national team coach Antoine Hey.
The former Tusker ace has been
regularly outstanding in the Kenyan national side's defence during
the 2010 Africa Cup/World Cup qualifying games.
