Gor Mahia are said to have agreed to terms with left full back Isaac “Lefty” Kipyegon from Zoo FC on a three-year deal. Kipyegon was in the Harambee Stars squad that recently won the CECAFA senior challenge cup.
The deal with Wesley Onguso Arasa fll through after the player made exhorbitant demands.
“Onguso insisted on one million transfer fee so the deal flopped because we were not ready to part with such a huge sum for a defender,” a source told Soka25east.
Earlier on, Gor Mahia are said to have signed another defender, Charles Momanyi from Kakamega Homeboyz.
“We’ve received Momanyi’s release letter from Kakamega Homeboyz and I can confirm that he’s now our player. Momanyi is a good young central defender and his addition to the team will definitely bring competition to our backline which is a good thing for any top club,” CEO Lordvick Aduda told Futaa.com
A Third signing is Lawrence Juma. The Nzoia United playmaker was a contender for midfielder of the year. His coach Bernard Mwalala confirmed the news.
“Lawi is a great and a disciplined boy,he’s destined for greatness.As a coach ,it’s sad to see such a player leave but once a player says he wants to progress his career elsewhere we have no choice but to let him go,we wish him the very best at Gor Mahia,” said Mwalala.
Meanwhile Humphrey Mieno, who had been a target of Gor Mahia in 2016, has now been released by Tusker and could be a target for Kogalo.
