It’s true that we have been trailing Musa Mohammed for a while now. We had a chance to engage him briefly last season before he left for Zambia,”
Harambee Stars sweeper Musa Mohammed could soon pen a deal with Kenyan Premier League (KPL) side Sofapaka, the club’s president Elly Kalekwa revealed on Tuesday.
The former Gor Mahia captain is now a free agent after his two-year contract with Zambian Super League giants Nkana FC ran out early June.
Kalekwa admitted that Musa was among the two players currently on their radar, adding that they had a small chat with him last season before he flew out.
“It’s true that we have been trailing Musa Mohammed for a while now. We had a chance to engage him briefly last season before he left for Zambia,” said Kalekwa.
He however added that they were yet to hold any lengthy talks with the player to deliberate on his possible return to the Kenyan Premier League.
“I gather he is now a free agent after outliving his contract with Nkana. We are yet to talk to him. We will do so at the right time. He is a good player, who can blend in with our squad.”
Apart from Sofapaka, Other Clubs Also Interested
Sofapaka will however have to fend off competition from Tanzanian giants Young Africans (Yanga SC) and a dozen other clubs also said to be eyeing the defender.
“A number of clubs have already approached me. I’ll let you in on my decision soon,” said Mohammed.
Mohammed turned out for Gor Mahia between 2010 and 2017 before making a free move to Albanian side KF Tirana but bolted out of the Scandinavian club before the expiry of his contract after a noisy pay dispute.
He immediately returned home and found his way into the Zambia Super League months later in 2018.
Mohammed has indicated willingness to extend his stay at Nkana if the club tables a new deal. He recently observed that he preferred the Zambian league because it was more professionally managed compared to the KPL.
Given a chance, I would pen a new deal with Nkana. I had a good run with them and even if we never won titles over there, we made a good impression of ourselves especially in the continental matches.”
