Leku had been signed at the onset of August 2018 as a free agent for a period of two years.

The year-long spell is intended to grant the former Vipers, Onduparaka and Express forward ample playing time as he gets acclimatized to the physical and fast Botswana premier League.

“Yes. He (Alfred Leku) was loaned for a period of year to Extension Gunners Football Club to help him get as much playing time as possible. Possibly, he will be recalled by Jwangeng Galaxy after monitoring his performance of the season” Pike Okello, his agent who is based in Lobatse city disclosed to Kawowo Sports.
