Kenyan Premier League side Sofapaka FC will sign one local player before the transfer window shuts, announced the club.
The 2009 champions are bolstering their squad following the poor start to the season.
Sofapaka President Elly Kalekwa said they have wrapped-up their transfer business for foreign players after attaining the set quota of five.
Batoto Ba Mungu recently completed the signing of Burundian midfielder Bizimana Amissi and goalkeeper Abdoul-Moubarak Aigba.
Amisi turned out for Rukinzu FC, and Moubarak joined from AS OTR Football Club in Togo. They signed a two-year deal each.
Burundian David Nshimirimana had also joined Ken Odhiambo charges.
“We have now closed our business to sign foreign players because we have reached the required quota, we already had two in our squad, and since none of them is going out, we are done with the business,” said Kalekwa.
At the beginning of this month, Sofapaka released seven players deemed surplus to the requirements.
Those axed included Nigerian duo Promise Chinonso and Michael Karamor, Ghanian import Jedinak Nana, goalkeeper Isaiah Wakasala, defender Faina Jacobs, midfielder David Simiyu and Bryson Juma.
