Ochieng made his debut for the Reds in 2014. The defender is off-contract following the competition of the 2016/2017 campaign, but FourFourTwo understands Ochieng has agreed to a new one-year deal.

The news is a boost for Adelaide United who have only just appointed a new coach, German Marco Kurz,following the departure of Guillermo Amor.

Ochieng moved to Australia from Kenya as a nine-year old. He came through the ranks of the AIS and Football South Australia's National Training Centre, before joining the Reds three years ago.

The 20-year old, who's father played international football for Kenya, was given his first-team debut in the FFA Cup by Josep Gombau.

Ochieng has played on the right of defence and at right wing. He made 14 appearances and scored two goals in the A-League and Asian Champions League last season.
