Mombasa, KENYA: Coast based Kenya Premier League club Bandari FC is planning to part ways with more players barely two days after axing a total of nine from its ranks.

Club’s media liaison officer Abdulrahman Mohamed confirmed to Baraka FM on Friday that head coach Paul Nkata has ordered for the release of more players he feels are not fit for his system.

‘’The coach has identified several players he wants the club to offload, having assessed them he is convinced they are not good enough to represent the club,’’ he said.

Mohammed further disclosed the club is in talks with a number of players and that could soon unveil its new recruits before the January transfer window elapses on 31st January 2017.

‘’We are in the process of finalizing contract details for a number of players, some are from other clubs while others impressed during the trials we conducted last week,’’ he added.

Bandari on Thursday trimmed its squad by letting go of nine players among them 2019 Kenya Premier League midfielder of the year award winner Anthony Kimani whom the club declined to renew his expired contract.

Also axed were Ugandan striker George Abege, goalkeeper Kennedy Onyanch, David Gateri, Khamisi Mwamzandi, Abbas Muhiddin, Victor Ndinya and Eric Kibisu.
