The transfer season is here with us and as usual, a number of top tier clubs are out to boost their squads. New players are joining new clubs while some are leaving after running down their contracts or to basically look for greener pastures. A number of players have also been released by clubs who no longer feel they fit their philosophy. Among the KPL teams, Wazito FC has been the busiest of them all in the current transfer window.
