Nairobi - KCB goalkeeper Sammy Okinda’s profile is rising rapidly after a remarkable season that saw him named the second best goalkeeper in the Kenyan Premier League (KPL), and reports have it that giants AFC Leopards have shown interest in securing his services.
The goalkeeper was a key player for the bankers after winning the number one slot from Kaleb Adola who eventually left the club, and he was instrumental in the season as KCB managed a fourth place finish, their best placing in their KPL history, and thus attracting Ingwe’s attention.
According to Leopards head coach James Nandwa, one of the positions he is ken on strengthening in the off-season is the goalkeeping area.
" We need to improve on some areas in the squad to compete next season. Goalkeeping is one of them and we will look at the options we have.
" Okinda is a good player and he has shown this season that he can be a top keeper. I can't say that for sure we will sign him but he is a person who interests me, Nandwa said.
The keeper attested to having been in contact with AFC Leopards but added that no serious talks took place.
