Former Kampala Capital City Authority (KCCA) FC goalkeeper, Benjamin Ochan has completed a move to Kenya Premier League (KPL) giants AFC Leopards.

The move comes just days after Ochan agreed to terminate his contract with Zambian side Kabwe Warriors.

The shot-stopper is understood to have signed a one-year renewable contract with the Ingwe, for whom he will feature for in the upcoming 2019/2020 season.

The move was confirmed by his agent Simon Musoke.

“Benjamin Ochan will be playing at AFC Leopards for the next season. Musoke was quoted as saying.

“We had a number of offers on the table but let us see how it progresses at AFC Leopards.

Ochan still had 6 months left on his deal with Kabwe but with the Zambian outfit embroiled in financial issues, the two parties decided to part ways.

The move to Kenya sees the 29-year-old move to his third foreign country. He first played on foreign land back in 2010 while in South Africa at Bloemfontein Celtics.

After spending the next 7 years with SC Villa, Victoria University and KCCA FC, Ochan then moved to Zambia where he has played for 18 months.

AT AFC Leopards, he will team up with country-mate Baker Lukoya.
