Talanta beef up squad ahead of new season – Nairobi – The Star Kenya

FC Talanta have announced the arrival of 16 new signings ahead of the new Kenyan Premier League season set to begin on September 24.

Talanta — gracing the topflight stage for the second time — witnessed a mass exodus of star players after the preceding season.

Headlining the list of new acquisitions is former Wazito man Clinton Okoth who joins from Migori Youth after a brilliant season in the National Super League (NSL) that saw him net 20 goals.

Okoth is expected to sharpen the attacking force that was left blunt by the departure of Francis Kahiro who netted nine goals last season. The towering striker sought a new home at KCB.

Other notable arrivals include bulky and hard-tackling centre-back Abdallah Salim and David Agesa both from Nairobi City Stars, Danson Kago (Mathare United) and Elisha Owino (Kisumu All Stars).

Alphric Omondi Alango (Liberty), Kisaka December (Riruta Makarios), Chris Omondi Owino (unattached), Idd Mbaraki Rashid (Congo Boys) and Winstone Song Inzoka (Zetech Titans) have penned deals with the club too.

Also joining the ranks of the Communications Authority of Kenya-sponsored club are Joseph Wanyonyi (Fortune Sacco), Henry Eli Obama (Liberty), George Ouma Onyango (Zetech Titans), Alex Luganji (Kenya Police), Charles Otieno Oduor (Nairobi City Stars) and Morgan Oduor Odhiambo (Nairobi Stima).
