Tusker FC forward Timothy Otieno has finally completed his big money move to Zambian top tier side Napsa Stars on a three year deal.

The 26-year-old former Gor Mahia striker was top scorer with 15 goals in the suspended Kenya Premier League and has been attracting interest from a number of clubs. 

The Pensioners as they are known is a football club based in Lusaka that plays in the MTN/FAZ Super Division.

Previously known as Profund Warriors, the club is named after and sponsored by the National Pension Scheme Authority. 

The team finished fourth in the past season with 48 points off 27 matches and Otieno is expected to add potency upfront as they challenge for honours in the coming years.

Meanwhile the Brewers have raided the den of rivals of AFC Leopards to snap up defender Christopher Orochum on a two year deal.

The lanky centre back was short on match minutes for Ingwe and it is expected he will be adding stability to the backline of the former champions.

At the same time, Nairobi City Stars signing spree continues with much sought midfielder Sven Yidah joining in from Kariobangi Sharks. 

Elsewhere, Ugandan forward Juma Balinya has officially decamped from Gor mahia after sealing a deal with his homeland team of KCCA. Balinya joined the Kenyan Premier League champions Gor Mahia FC last season from Tanzanian giants Yanga SC.
