With finances tight at the club, Gor Mahia continued to pursue local targets as they seek to strengthen the side ahead of the 2018-2019 season. A report on goal.com states that Kogalo are pursuing Moses Mudavadi of Kakamega Homeboyz.
“He (Mudavadi) was here last week, watched training but did not take part. He has been around finalizing a few things and if all goes well he will be our player by the end of the week.” said an official to goal.com
The winger is vastly experienced, having played for Homeboyz since 2013.
A war of words ensued between Gor Mahia CEO Lodvick Aduda and his Bandari counterpart Edward Oduor after the former travelled to Mombasa last Friday to reportedly woe Abdallah to the record SPL champions.
“Bandari football club wish to state categorically that Abdallah Hassan like other players in the team has a binding contract with the club and is therefore not for sale. We have no intention of selling any player to Gor Mahia or other potential suitors since we are top contenders for the league title next season,” warned Oduor adding that K’Ogalo should emulate Bandari by grooming their own players instead of going on a poaching spree every transfer window.
In a quick rejoinder, Aduda has denied approaching Abdallah over a transfer to Gor Mahia.
“I clearly stated that I was travelling to Mombasa to sign a Coast Stima player whose identity I will only reveal after we are through with the deal. I don’t know where news of Hassan Abdallah came from,” said Aduda.
His sentiments were backed by Abdallah who revealed that Sofapaka and Ulinzi Stars are some of the top clubs that have contacted him.
“Yes it is true that several clubs have approached me among them Sofapaka and Ulinzi but Gor Mahia is yet to approach me. Bandari fans should treat those reports as rumours,” offered Abdallah before pledging his allegiance to the Coastal outfit.
