Kenya Police winger Clifton Miheso has revealed the reason behind his failed move to Ethiopian Premier League side Wolkite FC. 

The winger was on the verge of joining the club but the deal fell through and he opted to sign with locals, Police FC. 

Miheso rubbished reports alleging that he was forced to undergo trials at the club clarifying that he failed to agree on key issues with the Ethiopian side.

“There was strong interest from Wolkite but we did not reach an agreement in the negotiations. I trained with them for a week but after the club failed to read from the same page with my agent, I returned home,” Miheso stated 

Miheso found the back of the net 15 times as a Police player in the 2021/2022 FKF Premier League season. 

The 29-year-old Harambee Stars winger put the failed transfer behind him and he is currently focused on aiding his team in the new season. 

With the appointment of Ababu Namwamaba as the new Cabinet Secretary for Sports, Police FC hope to have a successful 2022/23 season as Kenya's football gets back to normalcy. 

“When you see sponsors coming back to the game is a sign that we are headed in the right direction. We have a new government and a new Cabinet Secretary who has handled the docket before and I believe he will streamline things,” Miheso added.

2022/2023 FKFPL is yet to kick off after the 18 participating clubs asked the FKF Transition Committee to postpone its commencement, arguing that they cannot participate in a FIFA-sanctioned league.
