Just five days after resigning from the national team Harambee Stars job, Belgian Paul Put landed a lucrative deal with Chinese second tier side Xinjiang Tianshan Leopard FC.

Nation Sports is in possession of a letter of offer that will see the tactician rake in Shs20 million as sign on fee and a monthly salary of approximately Sh4 million.

Besides, he will take home Sh500 000 and Sh300 000 for a win and draw in bonuses, a company car, accommodation and two airline tickets per year between his country of resident and China.

Put will be permitted to hire his own stuff while in China, a proposal reportedly turned down by the Football Kenya Federation partly contributing to his resignation.

POSITIVE

“Please send us your response within 48 hours whether it is positive or negative. We will forward you the necessary documents,” read part of the statement in the offer dated February 23, 2018 and signed by club chairman.

Xinjiang Tianshan Leopard host their matches at a 50 000-capacity Xinjiang Stadium.

The club finished 11th on the 16-team table with 35 points from 30 rounds after winning nine games, drawing eight and losing 13.

The 61-year-old, who led Kenya to the 2017 Cecafa Senior Challenge Cup, has also been shortlisted among 23 coaches for vacant Guinea national team job.
