- Harambee Stars Midfielder Johanna Omolo has ended months of uncertain speculation of where his next move lies after the player agreed to ink on a one-year contract extension with Belgian, Cercle Brugge.
After several months of uncertainty, Kenya international has finally penned a one-year deal after he had run down his contract with the Flemish club at the end of June and was yet to renew the same with his future remaining unknown.
However, the Belgian club has now confirmed on its official website that the midfielder will now stay for another season in Belgium.
“Johanna Omolo has signed a new contract. The 31-year-old Kenyan international signed a new one-season deal and is entering his fourth football year at Cercle,” the club statement confirmed:
“This new contract is a great feeling. It clicked well with the coach, and it is also nice that I can play football for a long time here. I hope that we can achieve our ambitions in this period as a club, but I am anyway confident I made the right choice,” Omolo said.
Omolo was an important link in the Cercle team in 2018, which clinched the league title to earn promotion to the top-flight.
Meanwhile, Kwale Starlets and Harambee Starlets’ striker Elizabeth Katungwa has landed a deal with Swedish outfit Dalhem IF.
The 21-year-old striker, who has been training individually in Kwale to keep fit, left for Stockholm, Sweden via Doha Qatar aboard Qatar Airways on Monday night alongside another Kenyan international Mary Kinuthia.
According to Kwale Girls High School coach Mukasa Amboko, Katungwa has been on the radar of Swedish scouts for the past two years following her splendid display both at school and national team level.
“One of the Swedish scouts secretly watched Katungwa lead our school team to the National title at Hill School in Eldoret and followed us to the East Africa Secondary School games in Rwanda in March 2018 where Katungwa scored the winning goal to win Kwale girls and Kenya gold medal in football after a long wait,” Amboko said.
