After months of uncertainty regarding his future following the expiry of his loan deal at Spanish side Girona FC, Harambee Stars forward Michael Olunga has joined Japanese side Kashiwa Reysol from Chinese side Guizhou Zhicheng.

Guizhou Zhicheng had sent the striker out on loan and with it having hit the maximum number of foreigners, the lanky former Gor Mahia man was always linked with a move out and a cross border deal has been agreed.

Three year deal

The striker has signed a three year deal with the Japanese side, said to be worth Kshs 300 million. Reports also have it that he will be earning a salary of Kshs 15 million in his stay at the club.

In an Instagram post, Olunga posted his pic with the team's jersey captioned: "New Roads, New Rivers, New Chapter. Beginning of another unfolded story." 

The 2015 Kenyan Premier League (KPL) Most Valuable Player graced greener pastures after a fine season in Kenya with Swedish side Djugarden IF his first stop, and after a year he was off to China before getting his ticket to Girona.

He set history as the first Girona player, and indeed Kenyan, to score a La Liga hat trick, in the team’s win over Las Palmas.
