Harambee Stars attacker Eric Johanna Omondi has switched clubs abroad after leaving Swedish outfit Jonkopings Sodra for Waasland-Beveren of Belgium.
Sports Brief understands the Kenyan international will spend the rest of the season with Waasland-Beveren after he joined them on a six-month loan deal.
The transfer was confirmed by the Belgian second-tier side who revealed Johanna had joined them as a free agent.
"Waasland-Beveren welcomes Eric Johana Omondi. The Kenyan international can be played as an attacking midfielder or as a striker," Waasland-Beveren said on their official website.
"He was out of contract and comes transfer-free from the Swedish Jonkoping. The club has signed the Kenyan for six months," the club added.
The 27-year-old made his debut in Europe with Swedish side Vasalund four years ago before later moving to Brommapojkarna in 2020.
However, his stint at Brommapojkarna was short-lived as he moved to Jonkoping, another Swedish club, months later.
He has a successful spell with Jonkoping as he scored 14 goals and set up three others in 55 appearances.
The ex-Mathare United star will now be hoping to help Waasland-Beveren earn promotion to the Belgian topflight.
Waasland-Beveren currently sit second on the table with 27 points, 10 behind leaders Westerlo.
