Speaking to Nation Sport, Gaspo Team Manager Edward Githua said Simba did not contact him on signing Aquino, and he only found out through social media.

"I did not know that she had already made negotiations with the club, though she had shared with me about her departure. I did not expect her to leave the club so soon. I wish her all the best in her new home," Githua said.

The 24-year-old will be the second Kenyan player to play for Simba after Harambee Starlets forward Bertha Omitta.

In January 2020, Aquino joined Portuguese side Atletico Ouriense on a one-year deal before quitting even before her contract ended and rejoined Gaspo at the start of last season.
