Gor Mahia organizing secretary Ronald Ngala has refuted claims that Gor Mahia have already signed SoNy Sugar striker Derek Otanga, an action which would be illegal since the transfer season has not started.
“We haven’t signed Otanga neither have we completed the signing of any new player. Treat it as rumours. The window is yet to open but we are in negotiations with a number of players who we intend to sign. We can’t reveal their names right now as the majority have running contracts with their clubs. We will, however, unveil them once we agree with their current clubs and when the window is open.” he said to the Star newspaper.
Otanga was the 5th leading scorer in the recently concluded campaign with 13 goals. He is also being pursued by Wazito FC, the new moneybags of the Kenya Premier League as well as by AFC Leopards.
The other players that Gor Mahia are pursuing may include the Camerounian Charles Edoa Nga. This according to reporter Bonface Osano. Edoa currently players in eSwatini. Osano reports that Gor Mahia have already signed him. Which is unlikely given that Ngala has made it clear that no player will be signed before the start of the transfer period.
