‘Oliech has had a very successful and positive trials since arriving and he will have a meeting with the management either today [Tuesday] or Wednesday to discuss a possible transfer,’ Eymael told the media.
‘I am very confident he will sign a pre-contract but I don’t know for how long.
‘It will not be six months but I suspect a one year deal because window opens in June and the season restarts in August.
‘Yes he [Oliech] looks very good and fit. He is scoring goals in training and that is the kind of striker I want for the club.’
Over the course of his career, Oliech has scored 43 goals and assisted a further 33 from 293 appearances in all competitions playing for the likes of Kenyan side Mathare United, Qatar-based Al Arabi Sports Club, French sides FC Nantes, AJ Auxerre, AC Ajaccio as well as Dubai CSC.
