Nyan went on to speak of his delight at agreeing the deal, saying: "I left Real de Banjul, who are always champions, to another champion club in Kenya.
"This is going to be a good start for me and I do hope to move on to a higher level by working hard here."
He continued: "I will like to take this opportunity to thank the Real de Banjul Executive for this opportunity because even though I joined the team a short while ago to help in this season's campaign, they didn't block my move like we have seen others do and they allowed me to come here."
