Kenyan Premier League (KPL) side Sofapaka have completed the signing of Nigerian forward Michael Tuborlayefa Karamor.

The 2009 league champions have been busy in the transfer market as they rebuild for the new season.

It is for this reason they have gone to West Africa to get an attacker who will help them get goals.

“Nigerian International Karamor Tuborlayefa Michael has signed a two-year deal to join us ahead of the 2020/21 season,” Sofapaka President Elly Kalekwa told Citizen Digital.

“The forward joins the club from Nigerian side Lagos Athletico for the next two seasons,” Kalekwa went on.

Karamor becomes the club’s fifth signing after having secured the services of Michael Bodo, Kevin Omondi, Roy Okal, and Paul Kiongera.

A couple of days ago, the club confirmed the signing of Armee Patriotique Rwandaise Football Club (APR) defender Isaac Mitima.

Batoto Ba Mungu have been active in the market, bringing in players who they feel can help them challenge for the league title next season.

Club president Elly Kalekwa once again reiterated his desire to see the team win the KPL title for the first time since 2009.

“We want to have a competitive squad made of quality players for the new season,” the Congolese businessman concluded.

Last season, Batoto ba Mungu pushed for a 10th place finish after managing to collect 31 points from the 23 matches played.

The John Baraza coached side managed to win eight matches, drawing seven and losing eight.
