Five foreign players joined KPL in the mid-season transfer window

New signing Francis Mustapha has been handed a starting role and that means Ephraim Guikan drops to the bench

Only five foreign players joined Kenyan Premier League in the mid-season transfer window that closed on Monday.

Out of the five, Alex Orotomal is the only non-East African to have joined the Kenyan domestic league. The Nigerian striker joined AFC Leopards from Sunrise of Rwanda.

KPL leaders Gor Mahia also raided the Rwandan league for the services of Burundian forward Francis Mustapha, who was snatched from Kiyovu FC.

Gor Mahia, however, lost Meddie Kagere to Tanzanian ginats Simba SC.  Kagere is among the two players, who moved from KPL to other leagues alongside former Bandari forward Anthony Wambani, who joined Swedish club Vasalunds IF.

Regionally, Tusker sought the services of Ugandan Jimmy Kulaba from Uganda Revenue Authority while Sofapaka brought in Rwandan Mico Justin

Sony Sugar crossed the border to Tanzania for the services of Castory Mumbara, who was signed from Police Mara FC.

Full international transfers: Jimmy Kulaba -from URA (Uganda) to Tusker; Mico Justin- from Police (Rwanda) to Sofapaka; Castory Mumbara-from Police Mara FC (Tanzania) to Sony Sugar; Francis Mustapha-Kiyovu FC (Rwanda) to Gor Mahia; Alex Orotomal-from Sunrise (Rwanda) to AFC Leopards; Meddie Kagere-from Gor Mahia to Simba SC (Tanzania) and Anthony Wambani from Bandari to Vasalunds IF (Sweden).
