FKFPL side AFC Leopards hope to complete a move for striker John Mark Makwata once they get a greenlight from FIFA to sign players.

AFC is currently facing a transfer ban after being reported to the World Football Governing Body by a number of players for failing to pay them their outstanding dues.

The club is however hopeful the ban will be lifted once they pay the said players (Vincent Habanmahoro, Soter Kayumba, and Tressor Ndikumana) and former head coach Andre Casa Mbungo from the proceeds got from the fundraiser held last week. The club managed to raise Ksh 8,068,400.00.

According to a report by Citizen Digital, Makwata is currently training with AFC Leopards who hope to sign him as a replacement for Elvis Rupia.

“Since we lost Elvis Rupia our priority is to get a top-class and experienced centre-forward. Don’t you think Makwatta fits the bill?” said a source within the club.

“Remember Makwatta was our player before he left for Zambia and his contributions to the club is there for anyone to see and if he finally joins us, I think it will be the best decision for both parties.”

Apart from Makwata, Ingwe have also been linked with moves for Duncan Otieno and Clifton Miheso.

Ingwe began the season with a 1-0 win over defending champions Tusker FC.
