Kenyan Premier League giants AFC Leopards are targeting a new keeper as the team continues to prepare for the new 2019/20 season.
The club has already roped in the services of keeper Ugandan keeper Benjamin Ochan to replace Eric Ndayishimiye who has since moved to Rwandese side AS Kigali.
The urge to rope in a new keeper is being necessitated by the impending departure of Jairus Adira who is said to be on his way to Posta Rangers.
In that regard, Leopards have earmarked keepers Erick Matasio and Benjamin Mukolwe as possible replacements should Adira leave. With others being linked with the club including an unnamed keeper from the National Super League.
Apart from Ochan Leopards have already roped in seven players ahead of the new season. The new faces include midfielder Vincent Habamahoro, defensive midfielder Treso Ndikumana, and Malian striker Ismaila Diarra.
Others are Soter Kayumba whose loan deal from Sofapaka FC was made permanent, striker Hansel Ochieng from Nzoia Sugar FC and defender Robert Mudenyu from Sony Sugar.
Coach Andre Cassambungo will hope that the new faces give him the much-needed boost as he seeks to better last season’s performance that saw them finish eleventh on the log.
They open their 2019/20 league campaign with a tie against Kakamega Homeboyz at the Bukhungu Stadium.
