Levy Muaka Set To Join Tusker FC And Become Kenya's Most Expensive Player
Kenyan International Levy Muaka could become the most expensive local player when his move from Nairobi City Stars to 2007 league champions Tusker is finalised this week.
The brewers are said to be ready to splash Ksh300, 000 ($3800) to land the marauding left foot attacker, a figure that would make him the most expensive ever in the Kenya Premier League.
Previously, defender Edgar ‘Fighter’ Ochieng’s Ksh250, 000 ($3,200) move from Mathare United to Sofapaka was the highest transfer figure.
City Stars chairman Justin Birich confirmed the intended deal and said the money was too tempting to block the deal.
"Muaka is our best player and it is sad to see him leave the club, but the money Tusker are offering for him is too tempting for us to scuttle the move. I believe he will soon be a Tusker player, and we will use the money to look for his replacement in the short period remaining," Birich told The Standard.
The club will replace Muaka place with two foreign players, a Ghanian and a Nigerian.
Defender John Amboko, who joined AFC Leopards and midfielder Dennis ‘Wise’ Okoth who has joined Gor Mahia are the other places that will be filled before the transfer window closes.
"We have been pursuing two foreigners and we are working on their work permits at the moment. I’m sure their move will be completed soon," Birich said.
