Kenya: AFC hold on to Saleh, Kiman, Musalia and Seda

AFC Leopards quartet -Jackson Saleh, Anthony Kimani, Martin Musalia and Edward Seda-have renewed their contracts with the club.

This will come as good news to the Ingwe faithful as they seek to see their club improve in the next season after an underwhelming 2014.

"The four have extended their stay at the den until 2016. Meanwhile the team resumes training on December 18 ahead of a tour to the western region that begins a few days later.

The tour begins with matches in Bomet all the way to Busia and Kakamega,"said a statement from the club.

Kimani's extension gives him an opportunity to pay back the fans after he spent the entire season on the sidelines following knee surgery. He resumed training towards the end of the season. Kimani was an integral part of the Inwge team that won the GOtv shield in 2013 scoring vital goals in the process.

"I am very happy to commit my future to Leopards as they have shown great faith in me even when I was injured. I cannot wait to get back on the pitch and repay the loyalty with good performances and help the team return to winning ways" said the versatile defender who skippered Harambee Stars to a second place finish in the Cecafa senior Challenge Cup in 2012.

Saleh who had his head turned by a lucrative offer from rivals Gor Mahia has signed an 18 month contract that will take him to the end of the 2016 season.

"I was not happy with the way our money issues were taking shape but after a thorough briefing, I understood and accepted the situation as a sportsman. We cant run away from problems since even where we stay and come from, there are still problems. Issues are always everywhere. I might leave Ingwe and end up facing even more serious problems," he observed.
