Kenyan defender Clyde Senaji has signed a contract extension with Malawi's top-flight club, Nyasa Big Bullets.

With his first contract set to end next month, the Kenyan has put pen to paper in a deal that binds him to Nyasa until 2026.

Senaji, who joined Nyasa at the commencement of the 2023 season from Tusker FC, has rapidly become a key player for Callisto Pasuwa's squad.

He secured a starting position for the Malawian champions and played a pivotal role in their success, contributing to their trophy collection.

"It was an easy decision for me to make to stay here because I had a good season here in Malawi where we won everything. My strong bond with Malawians and everybody associated with this great club also convinced me to have some more time here," Senaji said, as reported by the Nyasa Club website.

Having joined Tusker from AFC Leopards in 2022, Senaji faced challenges fitting into the team and sought a fresh opportunity. Nyasa gave him a new home, and he hopes that extending his time there will enhance his chances of returning to the national team.

Elsewhere, another Kenyan, Erick 'Marcelo' Ouma Otieno, who completed a move from Swedish club AIK is preparing for a much-anticipated debut with his new club, Rakow Czestochowa.

The football community eagerly anticipates Ouma's performance on the European stage, especially now that Ekstraklasa's resumption date has been confirmed for February 11, 2024.

Ouma's inaugural competitive match with Rakow may be an away fixture against Warta Poznan at the Dyskobolia Grodzisk Wielkopolski Stadium.

The former AIK man is expected to participate in some friendly matches as the team undergoes a training camp in Turkey ahead of the official league fixture.

According to Pulse Sports, the friendly matches are set against Slovenian side Mura on January 24, 2024, Bulgarian club PFC Ludogorets Razgrad on January 27, 2024, a rematch with Slovenian side NK Maribor on February 1, 2024, and a tie against Dnipro-1 the following day.
