Nairobi City Stars have completed the signing defensive midfielder Sven Yidah Lusigi from Kariobangi Sharks.

Sven, who joins the club on a two-year deal, is the second signing Nairobi City Stars has completed after striker Erick Ombija.

Ombija and Sven add on to the earlier signed youngsters Rowland Makati from Vapor Sports, Timothy Ouma from Laiser Hill Academy, Ronney Kola Oyaro from Kenya School of Government (KSG) and keeper Elvis Ochieng Ochoro from Hakati Sportiff, all roped in as developmental players.

Speaking to Nairobi City Stars’ official website after his unveiling at their offices on Monday, Sven said:  “I am happy to join Nairobi City Stars. They have an ambitious project and I am eager to play a part in making it a success.”

“I will also be joining my former teammates (Ebrima) Sanneh, Shittu (Salim Abdalla) and Wycliffe (Otieno) who also played a huge role in convincing me to be part of this project. I promise to work hard and to be fully committed every day and any day.”

According to the club, Sven, with 97 Kenyan Premier League (KPL) appearances with Sharks from the 2017 season, will don significant jersey no. 18 at City Stars – same as he had at Sharks.
