Kenyan Premier League side Kariobangi Sharks has roped in Nakuru All-stars forward Musa Ekai on a long term deal.
Ekai will be expected to hunt the goals for the William Muluya side especially after the departure of Masoud Juma who was the club's and league's top scorer but left for South Africa after a season with Sharks.
"We are pleased to announce the signing of centre forward, Musa Ekai from Nakuru Allstars FC on a long term deal," the club said.
The forward expressed satisfaction after penning the deal and said the move is a step forward in his career. He praised his new home as the place where young talent is embraced.
"I'm pleased to get this opportunity. I've been training with the team for the past couple of weeks and to finally get a contract here is a great step in my career as I've always hoped to play top flight football though I never imagined the opportunity will come this early," Ekai said.
"Sharks is a good team, a dream team not only for me but for most upcoming players as it's one of the few teams that young players are given that rare opportunity to prove their worth," he added.
Sharks will be hoping to perform in the league and domestic campaign like last season where they finished third in KPL and reached the GOTV Shield finals.
