KPL transfers: Kakamega Homeboyz acquires Allan Wanga’s services

Kenyan international midfielder Allan Wanga has joined Western side Kakamega Homeboyz as the new season kicks off next month.

Chairman of the Western Kenya-based side Cleophas “Toto” Shimanyula said Wanga had been handed two-year contracts.

Wanga moved from 2016 champions Tusker fc at the end of last year and join Homeboyz as a free agent.

Homeboyz have also acquired other Premier League experienced players as they look to mount pressure to claim the 2017 title.

The other newly signed players include defence kingpin Alex Anekeya who was lured from Thika United and midfielder Kennedy Rono from Chemelil Sugar.

The recruitment of Anekeya follows the departure of reliable   defender Charles Momanyi who joined Gor Mahia last month.

Wanga will certainly be given the lead striker’s role following the departure of Wycliffe Ochomo following the expiry of his contract. The much travelled Wanga had been with Tusker for two seasons. He has also previously featured for AFC Leopards and Sofapaka in the Premier League, Azam in Tanzania’s top league and El Merreikh in Sudan.

The proven goal scorer has also had professional stints in Angola, Azerbaijan and Vietnam.

Shimanyula said he had given the technical bench a free hand to scout for players who would turn around the fortunes of the club this year.

Homeboyz’s tactician Mike Mururi, who won the 2014 KPL Coach of the Year award, has moulded useful side in recent times.
