Wazito FC's preparations ahead of the new season continue to take shape, following the signing of Michael Oduor Lumumba from Sofapaka FC on a long-term deal.
The exciting midfielder has been with Sofapaka since 2017 and was a key player as they finished runners up in the Kenya Premier League behind winners Gor last season.
The 23-year is a versatile player who can be deployed on the flanks or behind the lead striker and can be a constant threat going forward.
Club sporting director Solomon Alubala hailed Oduor’s arrival terming him one of the best young talents in the country.
“He is a good young player and we are happy to have him on board because we want to develop a good team for the future. He is still growing and we will give him room and the right environment to develop further,” Alubala told the club website.
Oduor promised to give the best for the team going into the new season, further urging the fans to get behind them during matches.
“I feel good because I have been welcomed well by my new teammates, I already feel at home here. To the fans, I want to promise them that we will give them entertainment and results, I urge them to rally behind the team when the new season kicks off,” he stated.
The Kenya Premier League new season kicks off on 31st of August.
