Kler has also recently just signed pro forms with Lithuanian side Dainava Alytus after previously being a member of Sheffield Utd’s famed academy set up, gaining experience under the tutelage of Nigel Clough son of football legend Brian Clough.
Spells on loan at Dumbarton followed in 2016, however Kler is hoping that the project with Dainava will be the catalyst to a long and successful career.

Kick Off Management are very pleased to announce the signing of Soloman Sambou and his transfer to St Albans City in the Vanarama National South.
