Kenyan Premier League side Gor Mahia have parted ways with Cameroonian striker Baldin Ngwa and subsequently offered him for sale. Ngwa has been released only four days to the close of the transfer window, six months after rejoining Gor Mahia from his stint in the Tunisian League. Ngwa had played for Gor for the whole of the 2010 season, where he was in red hot form alongside George Blackberry Odhaimbo playing an integral part in the team’s second place finish.
According to the team’s official website, Ngwa has agreed to leave the club through mutual consent after holding a meeting with club officials.
The Club Website says that “the club’s decision to put Ngwa on sale has been occasioned by the fact that having him would have meant Congolese Itubu Imbem was not going to be signed as per the Kenyan Premier League rules on the number of foreign players per club”.
“The coach decided that we offload Ngwa to pave way for Imbem who he prefers. We talked to Ngwa and he accepted the coach’s position,” Gor Mahia secretary George Bwana was quoted as saying on gormahiafc.co.ke
“It is sad we have to let him go. He has been a diligent servant of the club and K’Ogalo family will definitely miss him. But we have to adhere to the requests of the technical bench,” adds Bwana.
Ngwa’s exit had been long coming from afar since the coming in of Coach Zdravko Logarusic. He has seen minimal playing time and he was always under fire from the Croat as he could not fully execute his game plan when he played.
With four days left before the transfer window closes, Ngwa is faced with a huge task looking for a place to settle with most clubs almost concluding their transfer business.
