BREAKING: Miheso completes shock move to NSL side

After three years of traversing the globe in search of greener pastures, Harambee Stars midfielder Clifton Miheso has returned back to the country, penning a one year deal with National Super League (NSL) side Kenya Police, Soka can now confirm.

The deal signed in June had been put under wraps to help the winger concentrate with the national team ahead of the just concluded AFCON finals as he had been named in head coach Sebastien Migne’s provisional squad for the tourney. He however did not make the final list for the showpiece, being cut after Stars’ training camp in France.

Portugal stint

The 26 year old signs with the Charles Korea Omondi led side after spending the first half of the year with Portuguese 3rd division side Olimpico Montijo.

Miheso last played in the country with AFC Leopards back in 2016 before leaving for pastures new in South Africa to play for Golden Arrows and then Buildcon FC of Zambia, before moving to Europe.

It is however not the first time the former Thika United and Sofapaka star has returned to the country after joining the paid ranks abroad. Before joining Leopards, Miheso had spent a year in Finland with Vaasan Palloseura (VPS) in 2015.

Though he did not feature regularly for Golden Arrows, his time in South Africa can be easily remembered for the unfortunate incident where it was reported that the former Kakamega High School alumnus was forced at gun point by some senior officials of the Durban based side to terminate his two year contract just six months in.

Safe haven

His move to Police, a club that has been somewhat of a safe haven for former and current internationals, follows those of Kevin Ade Omondi and Patrick Oboya who have featured for the club in the NSL in recent seasons.

A CECAFA winner with Kenya in 2013 and with 37 caps to his name, Miheso is currently with the national team in preparations for the upcoming two-legged CHAN qualifier against Tanzania.
