KPL Transfers: Wazito keen to sign ex-Gor Mahia star Karim Nizigiyimana

Newly promoted side keen to acquire the services of the Burundian defender before new season kicks off

Kenyan Premier League (KPL) side Wazito FC are in talks to sign defender Karim Nizigiyimana a club source has revealed.

The Burundian was axed by K’Ogalo last year after an injury-ridden season that saw him miss almost the whole season.

A top source from Wazito has confirmed Nizigiyimana, who currently turns out for Ugandan side Vipers SC, is keen on a return to the KPL.

“It is true Nizigiyimana is interested in returning to the KPL and Wazito have made contact,” the source told Goal on Thursday.

“He is a talented player, skilled and experienced in equal measure and if we sign him it will be a plus to the team. We have not agreed on some minor issues but we are hopeful a deal will be sealed soon.”

The promoted side have been on a spending spree, and they have already sealed the services of several top players, Gad Mathews, Pistone Mutamba, Derrick Otanga, Bernard Ochieng and Kevin Omondi.
