There are two days left in the mid season transfer season and Gor mahia are still trying to sign Amazulu winger Paul Were. Though the club decided to release him after they were relegated, they have yet to agree to formally release him.
“We are still in talks with Were. There are a few loose ends need to tie up. The problem is from Amazulu who are yet clear with the player,” said Killo to supersport.com.
The speedy Were hardly played while at Durban based Amazulu and spent most of his time on the bench or the terraces.
Killo says that talks are at an advanced stage pending action from Amazulu.
“At this point, i can only say we are at 60 percent in the talks. The player has accepted all the terms. Lets see how things go by the end of the day on Monday. We will have a word for you on Tuesday,” added Killo.
Aside from Gor Mahia, Harambee stars coach Bobby Williamson is eager for the move to happen as it will make him eligible to play in the CHAN qualfiers
“It will be great to have Were in the squad as we face Ethiopia. He brings in a lot to the team and his presence will give us plenty of options upfront especially as Jacob Keli has gone to Zambia,” said Williamson to the Standard.
Were scored Kenya’s goal during the 2017 AFCON qualifier against Congo. He can play on either wing and is a handful for defenders due to his pace on the ball.
Sserunkuma moves to City Stars comes a cropper
Nairobi City stars who had excitedly announced the signing of Dan Sserunkuma, were disappointed when the former Gor Mahia dangerman failed to show up for the signing ceremony. Peter Jabuya, the city stars chairman expressed his disappointment to supersport.com
“Sserunkuma is a very good player and we had hopes of getting him back but from the look of things that will not be happening as we approach the mid season deadline of midnight yet he has not availed himself as we thought,” Jabuya told supersport.com.
The return of their prodigal son would have bolstered City Stars who appear destined for relegation being placed second from bottom.
