Kakamega Homeboyz will sign at least four players before the transfer window closes, as revealed by the team’s administration.

Mike Mururi, the club’s coach, has underscored the need to strengthen the team noting the second leg of the Kenyan Premier League (KPL) will be tighter than the first one.

“We have not made any signing and now we are looking for four players before the window closes. We need a goalkeeper, a wing back, central midfielder and a striker,” Mururi revealed to Citizen Digital.

Homeboys are currently ninth on the KPL log after 14 outings, with 19 points.

The club has lost former Tusker and KCB striker Andrew Murunga who has joined Natioanl Super League (NSL) side Ushuru.

Ushuru coach Ken Kenyatta has confirmed roping him the former Harambee Stars striker.

“He is now our player and I hope he will play a pivotal role in the remaining matches as we continue our charge back to the top next season,” Kenyatta offered.

At the den, AFC Leopards have roped in former Thika United striker Raymond Omondi on a two-year contract.

The development has been confirmed by the club’s interim Head Coach Tom Juma, adding they are eying more players.

“Gilbert Fiamenyo is injured and could be a long-term absentee, and we need to act swiftly to find his replacement. Raymond has started training with us already. He is a great addition to the squad,” Juma charged.

Other players who are on the verge of joining the den are former Ushuru striker Aziz Okaka and highly-rated Burundian striker Alexis Kitenge.
