Kenyan international Arnold Origi’s fine run of form for his Norwegian club, Lillestroem has seen him rewarded with a new three year deal.
Origi’s importance to the team is underscored by the fact that the goalkeeper has featured in all of the team’s 28 matches so far in the season after playing in all 30 matches last season.
His contract was due to end in December 2015 and speaking after signing the new deal, the keeper said many other competing clubs had approached him but choosing Lillestroem was a no brainer.
“I have had other offers from Norwegian clubs which could have earned me a lot more money but here in Norway, there is only one club that’s true – it’s LSK and it’s one that I would like to be with for more years. It was an easy choice for me,” he told the club’s official portal.
Origi is featuring for the third Norwegian club since making the move from Kenya eight years ago. He has previously turned out for FK Moss and Ullensaker.
