Yanga FC of Tanzania has confirmed the signing of Bandari and Harambee Stars goalkeeper Farouk Shikalo.
The 22-years-old has had two wonderful seasons with the dockers who finished runners-up in the Kenya Premier league twice in a row.
The deal was officially confirmed on Yanga’s Facebook page. The former Posta Rangers and Muhoroni Youth custodian has agreed to join the Tanzanian side from next season. The agreement has been reached between the player and Yanga representatives in Cairo, Egypt where Shikalo is with his national team.
He also plays as an understudy to Patrick Matasi in the national team squad and is expected to make the strong 23-man squad by coach Sebastian Migne for the 2019 Africa Cup of Nations.
Shikalo had initially admitted being interested with the move if the offer appeals to him with the Tanzanians having posted his image on their official Twitter account welcoming him to the club, a post they have since deleted.
Bandari are currently in South Africa for their pre-season programme before heading to Rwanda where they will participate in the Cecafa Kagame Cup.
