Sofapaka close to Rwandese signing

26 June 2014, 14:25

Nairobi - Sofapaka are close to landing Evariste Mutuyimana after agreeing terms with Rwanda outfit SC KIYOVU for the services of the goalkeeper.

The fourth-placed Kenyan Premier League side are looking to beef up their squad ahead of the second-half of the season and have earmarked the Rwanda international as a key transfer target.

Club chairman Elly Kalekwa confirmed the deal, with paperwork the only remaining speedbump to overcome before Mutuyimana can officially join his new team-mates.

"We have agreed terms with the player and his club and he just have some things to finish up at the club then we will have his release," Kalekwa said in a statement posted on the Nairobi-based side's website.

"He played for Sofapaka during the Nationwide days and has since chalked up some good experience including playing for the Rwandan national team.

"His addition here will be good for us in terms of depth, leadership and experience."

Mutuyimana's arrival will provide adequate cover for the void left by veteran keeper and captain Duncan Ochieng, who is recovering from an injury.
