Trio set to return but The Don keeping transfer cards hidden

Head coach Dunstan Nyaudo has assured of bolstering the team in the second leg

Head coach Dunstan The Don Nyaudo is not just letting the cat out of the bag, as far as his transfer activity is concerned, with the Kenyan Premier League (KPL) mid season transfer window set to swing open in about three weeks.

The coach hasn’t seemed to struggle a lot with players fitting in the different positions and has even had the luxury of juggling players in different positions, at times his hand forced by injuries to key players, but still he says he will be involved.

He says the new players to come on board have been identified already but ruled out a very busy transfer period.

Targets identified

“At the moment all I can say is I have already identified my targets for the second leg. I think we will bolster with one or two players but I can’t mention them at the moment. When the time is right we will just unleash them,” he said.

Omar Boraafya, Mark Bikokwa and Geoffrey Kokoyo are set to rejoin the team after stints out for advanced military training and the coach feels he already has quality players coming to the side.

“Remember we still have Boraafya, Kokoyo and Bikokwa coming back in the second leg so we will have a very strong team. They have started training and I believe in three weeks or so they will be fit enough to feature and as a coach I am happy with the options I have,” he added.

Selection headache

The team has gotten its groove after a shaky period at the start of the season and the coach is aware that with addition of the three players plus the new signings, selecting the team will not be easy, but he welcomes the headache.

“I know I will have a selection headache in the second leg but that is fine with me. I’d rather have that than wish to have these players when they aren’t available; for us I foresee a very interesting second leg,” he concluded.
