Kedah sign Lawrence Olum from Sporting KC


Kedah have secured the signing of Kenyan defender, Lawrence Olum from Major League Soccer side, Sporting KC.

The Canaries have been on the hunt for foreign signings throughout the last one month, and it now seems that they have secured one of their primary targets in the form of Olum, who is likely to spearhead their defence in 2015.

After monitoring his situation in the USA, the Kedah FA management contacted an agent to facilitate the move, with the Kenyan himself keen on making the switch after spending the last three years with Sporting KC.

The deal has now been closed, with the 30 year-old defender set to don the Green and Yellow jersey of Kedah next season.


Lawrence Olum made a total of 25 appearances for Sporting KC in the MLS last year, and was primarily regarded as an important rotational player. However, he will definitely be one of the first few names on Kedah’s team sheet next year, as they push to secure promotion back into the Super League.
