Kenyan Goalkeeper Arnold Origi Joins Kongsvinger IL in Norway

Ex-Harambee Stars first choice goalkeeper Arnold Origi has switched clubs in Norway joining second division outfit Kongsvinger IL Toppfootball from Sandness UF.

Origi, 34, has been prime target for the 126-year-old club since leaving topflight side Lillestrom in 2017.

“Origi is a very, very good keeper. I know him well from the time in Lillestrom and he has a long time in Norwegian football.

We know what we are getting and we are very pleased to get this solution in place,” Espen Nystuen, the club’s chief said.

Origi last played for the Harambee Stars in the 2017 Afcon qualifiers against Guinea Bissau in a two-legged fixture they lost 1-0 both home and away.
