A Kenyan attacker has completed a move to the DStv Premiership for the 2021/22 campaign as clubs finalise their preparations for the new season.
Having previously plied trade in Sweden for Vasalunds IF, Ovella Ochieng has surfaced in Mzansi to begin his PSL career with Marumo Gallants after parting ways with the Superettan club in June.
The 21-year-old is touted as one of the young top talents to have emerged from Kenya in recent years, and he plays as a striker and a winger.
Ochieng becomes the latest attacking acquisition for Gallants under new coach Sébastien Migné after the addition of Ivorian striker Sede Dion who has joined the club after leaving Botswana topflight outfit Jwaneng Galaxy.
“Ovella Ochieng is a talented youngster from Kenya, and he has joined Marumo Gallants. He is a very good player who will assist the team with goals and assists this season in their league campaign and in the CAF Confederation Cup,” said the source.
Meanwhile, Gallants have also completed the signing of defender Sicelo Hlatshwayo, who previously played for Jomo Cosmos and Polokwane City, among other clubs.
