STARS ABROAD Joseph Okumu's meteoric rise from rejection in South Africa, one-year sabbatical to France's Ligue 1
The 26-year-old Kenyan international has joined the Will Still-coached side from Gent on a five-year contract
The former Kariobangi Sharks, JS Kabyliye and Cape Town City striker spent the second half of last season on loan at another Saudi club Al Faisaly, where he scored eight times in 13 appearances with The Burgundy.
He made his mark at Kariobangi Sharks during the 2017/2018 season where he emerged the Kenyan Premier League top scorer with 23 goals, which earned him a move to Benni McArthy’s Cape Town.
In four appearances, he scored just one goal. He also had brief stints at UAE side Dibba Al Furajiah and Libya's Al Nasr, before joining Algerian side JS Kabylie. After that, he moved to Morocco before joining Saudi Arabia.

STARS ABROAD: Metrics show why Eric 'Marcelo' Ouma could follow Joseph Okumu to a top European league
Ouma has been linked with moves to several European clubs, including Atalanta, Wolfsburd, Crystal Palace and an unnamed club in France.
Since turning professional, it is his stint at Saudi that has turned out to be most successful so far, so it is not surprising that he has opted to move to the country on a permanent basis following the expiry of his contract with Diffa.
Masud will be hoping that his goals will help Al Jabain seal promotion to the Saudi Pro League next season, where he will face teams that are filling their stock with European Superstars.
When Cristiano Ronaldo signed for Al Nassr in January, he effectively opened the doors for other players to move to the league. So far, some of the biggest names to have joined him in Saudi include Ng’olo Kante, Karim Benzema, Roberto Firmino, Jordan Henderson and Riyad Mahrez.
