Asike has had two different stints with Tusker FC over the last six years and has two Premier League titles to show for it, as well as one FKF Cup title.
He was also named defender of the year last season as he led the Brewers to another Premier League crown.
Asike last featured for Tusker in an FKF Premier League clash against Vihiga Bullets in Nairobi, where he, unfortunately, picked an injury that required minor surgery.
