Gor Mahia Secretary General George Bwana tells Goal they have opened negotiations with KCB to sign striker Paul Kiongera on a permanent deal
Gor Mahia are keen to give top striker Paul Kiongera a long term contract at the club when his one year loan deal expires at the end of the year.
In this regard, the 2013 Kenya Premier League champions have started talks with KCB inorder to keep the striker though nothing has been agreed on so far.
Kiongera was loaned to Gor Mahia at the beginning of this season on an initial one year contract. He has so far scored four goals for Gor Mahia and is one of the key players, who have helped the club to win the title.
Gor Mahia Secretary General George Bwana has told Goal that they are doing everything possible to keep the striker.
“He (Kiongera) has been instrumental in our campaign this season and we are currently talking with KCB to keep him for a longer period of time. So far nothing has been agreed on but we hope to finalise with the bankers soon.”
Kiongera will not be eligible to play against his former club when they meet Gor Mahia on Sunday. “The terms of our contract with KCB is that he cannot play against them and that will not happen when we meet on Sunday.”
