AFC Leopards have signed Eugene Mukangula from Thika United.

Ingwe lured the midfielder with a three-year deal away from a cash-strapped Thika United that is in the process of rebranding to Mount Kenya United.

“We are pleased to announce the signing of winger Eugene Mukangula,” Ingwe announced in a post on the club’s facebook account.

Mukangula played his last match for Thika United in a 3-0 defeat by Sofapaka at the Narok Stadium on Sunday. Ingwe finally got their wish when Mukangula accepted to move to the Den after he turned down a similar opportunity some time back.

He will link up with former teammate Saad Musa, who also joined Ingwe early in the transfer window.

Rodolfo Zapata is seeking to strengthen his attacking line that has over-relied on Ezekiel Odera and Whyvonne Isuza for goals.

Elijah Mwanzia joins Ulinzi Stars from Mathare United.

Sofapaka, who had set their eyes on winning their first KPL title since 2009, are still in the market for two more players.

“Kasaya will act as a cover for Mathias Kigonya but we are still looking for a defender and a midfielder,” coach John Baraza told Goal.

Sofapaka are currently joint second on the log with 28 points, same as Ulinzi Stars, who enjoy a superior goal difference.

AFC Leopards is holding talks with former Tusker FC defender Eugine Asike with hopes of sealing a move.

The ex-Sofapaka man has been a rock at the back of the eleven-time league champions before his shock exit this month, after his contract expired. A source privy to happenings at The Den has told Goal that the player is open to joining Ingwe, but his financial demands have to be met.

“Yes, it is true we are interested in signing him, he is a proven winner who will add quality to our team as well as stability at the back. He is willing to join the club, but that will be confirmed once both parties agree on sign on fee as well as salary.”

This comes just a day after the club announced the capture of Thika United forward Eugine Mukangula on a three-year contract.

                SOFAPAKA DEFENDER SIGNS FOR VIHIGA UNITED

John Baraza of Sofapaka coach.

Sofapaka defender Vitalis Akumu has signed for Vihiga United after leaving the club.

Akumu, who has never started any match for Sofapaka since joining the team, has been below Moussa Omar, Rodgers Aloro, Willis Ouma, Yusuf Mohammed, Humphrey Okoti and Kevin Oduor in the pecking order, hence limited chances of a starting place.

“Akumu requested if he could leave the team to join Vihiga United where he can get more playing time and we granted him his wish. So that means I will be going for a defender to replace him when the transfer window opens,” Sofapaka coach John Baraza told Goal on Wednesday.

                AFC LEOPARDS MAKE IMPROVED BID FOR KPL TOP SCORER

Elvis Rupia of Nzoia Sugar.

AFC Leopards have reportedly returned with a second bid to sign Nzoia Sugar striker Elvis Rupia.

Rupia has scored 15 league goals for Nzoia Sugar, just two shy of the 2017 total tally by the Golden Boot winner, Masoud Juma.

According to sources within the club, AFC Leopards called up a meeting with Rupia to convince him to switch allegiance.

The meeting could also throw into doubt a possible move to Zambian side Power Dynamos, who are also interested in his signature, though they are yet to make a formal offer.

AFC Leopards have already signed two players among them Eugene Mukangula and Saad Musa, both from Thika United.
