Kenyan defender Johnstone Omurwa has joined Israeli Premier League side Sektzia Ness Ziona F.C.
The club confirmed the acquisition of the 23-year-old defender via its Facebook post.
Omurwa joined the club alongside Brazilian Ari Mora from Benny Sachnin and 25-year-old Guinea international defender Lancint Sidiba from Dinamo Tirana.
The defender joined the Israeli top-tier from Football Kenya Federation Premier League, where he featured for Wazito FC. He had also turned out for Mathare United and Vihiga United in 2018.
In 2021, Omurwa had trials in South Africa with Premier Soccer League (PSL) side Bidvest Wits, but the move did not materialize because the club had already exhausted their foreign quota.
He made his debut for the senior team Harambee Stars on September 8, 2019, against Uganda in a match that ended in a 1-1 draw.
