[vc_row][vc_column][vc_column_text]Harambee Stars defender Joseph Okumu was on Monday given a heroic reception by Belgian side K.A.A Gent upon his arrival from Swedish top tier side IF Elfsborg where he spent the past two seasons.

On Sunday, Kenyan Breaking KE exclusively revealed that the Kenya international had penned a four-year deal with the Belgian giants and the club has now confirmed his arrival that is meant to tighten their backline.

Okumu signed a four-year deal that will keep him at the Belgian Pro League side until June 2025.

“With the arrival of the 24-year-old Kenyan, we are strengthening our defence. Joseph is a great central defender who will also add footballing ability to our defence,” Sports Manager Tim Matthys told the club’s website.

The 24-year-old who started his career at Chemelil Sugar has seven caps for the national team Harambee Stars and played 41 games during his time in Boras, Sweden while also qualifying for next season’s Europa League.

He was in December 2019 named the “Breakthrough Player of The Season” by his club IF Elfsborg of Sweden which he termed as “an honour”.

Danish side Midtjylland, French duo of Lorient and Reims and Scottish heavyweights of Rangers and Celtic all tabled their bids for the Kakamega High School alumnus but settled for the Belgium Pro League side, with the club elated with his decision.

“He has a very good vertical passing and it is no coincidence that he has attracted the attention of many clubs. We are glad he chose us,” Matthys added.

Several top European clubs were after the 24-year-old signature but he settled on K.A.A Gent, a decision that elated the club. PHOTO/COURTESY

Tipped as a future Harambee Stars captain, Okumu is contracted to the club until 2025 and becomes the third Kenyan to sign for K.A.A Gent after his compatriots Robert Mambo (2000) and John Muiruri (2001).[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row]
