Kenyan Premier League (KPL) side Kariobangi Sharks have confirmed the signing of Tanzania winger Athanas Mdam from Singida United on a three-year deal.
In a statement on the club’s official porta, the forward put pen to paper on Thursday 21 February this coming a week after Singida had conformed the departure of the striker.
Mdam said of his signing: “I’m really happy that the deal has gone through. The team has welcomed me with open arms and I am ready to repay the coach’s faith with my performances on the pitch.”
The striker however will have to wait for his debut in Sharks colours as he is not eligible to play for the team until the mid-season transfer window opens on March 11.
The forward who has represented Tanzania at U-20 level was part of the Singida United team that featured at this year’s SportPesa Cup, losing in the opening round to Bandari FC; the Kenyan side believed to have spotted him then.
He joins a Sharks side who currently sit in 6th place with 21 points, seven adrift of leaders Mathare United.
He becomes our fifth foreign player to feature for the club since its establishment after that of Ebrimma Sanneh, John Kuol, Matthew Tayo Odongo and George Abege.
