AFC Leopards managed to capture the signature of Kenyan international midfielder Kevin Kimani just hours before the transfer window closed on Tuesday night.
Kimani, who has penned a one-year deal with Ingwe, was voted in 2011 as the 2011 Kenyan Premier League (KPL) Player of the Year.
But after leaving current KPL champions Tusker last June for Jomo Cosmos in South Africa, he failed to get any game-time.
“Kimani will be with us for the duration of this season. The deal is through and is above board, and we look forward to seeing him in Ingwe colours,” AFC Leopards club chairman Dan Mule was quoted saying on the official KPL website.
Kimani was also previously on ten books of Belgian club Bocholter VV.
Thirteen-time league champions AFC Leopards have made 13 other signings in the December-January transfer window: Duncan Otieno (from Posta Rangers), Robinson Kamura (Mathare United), Whyvonne Isuza (Mathare United), Salim Abdallah (Posta Rangers), Samwel Ndung’u (Muhoroni Youth), Dennis Sikhayi (Western Stima), Gabriel Andika (Western Stima), Marcus Abwao (Nairobi Stima), Michael Kibwage Wanyika (Kakamega Homeboyz) and Ibrahim Mao (Sofapaka).
