The Kenyan Premier League (KPL) midseason transfer window shut on Monday 8 April at 11.59pm EAT, with at least 79 players making moves as clubs bolstered their ranks for the final push in the season.
Of the transfers, troubled Mount Kenya United was the most active, shipping in eight new players, while KCB FC and Mathare United were the least active, with no new faces joining the two sides.
Mount Kenya United, who have lost a number of key players, raided the lower leagues for players, with none of the eight new signings coming from top flight sides. Leroy Otieno has been shipped in from second tier side Police FC, as well as Erick Kipkirui who joins from St. Josephs Youth.
Ali Musa, a defender, has also been roped in at the team, and he joins from FKF Division One League side, Buruburu Sports FC. Steven Barak joins the team from FKF Regional League side, Makadara Youth FC while Musa Ekai has been plucked from Kariobangi Sharks B, which plays in the FKF Division 2 League.
Also from the FKF Division 2 League is Norman Werunga, a defender from Zetech University.
Mount Kenya United’s list will also have two foreigners, Ghanaian Mozart Adjetey, a goalkeeper from Dreams FC in Ghana and Congolese midfielder Lutumba Nzunzi, who was unattached.
Chemelil Sugar, AFC Leopards and Kakamega Homeboyz each registered seven players, while Zoo FC made only one signing.
