David Owino “Calabar” has dismissed rumours that he has received offers from Sudan.

“Those are just things I am also learning from the internet. I am not aware of any deal from Sudan and as far as I am concerned I am still a Gor Mahia player bound by a contract.” he said to the club’s site

There have been rumours circulating that Calabar was bound for Sudanese giants El Merreikh. Calabar joined Kogalo in 2012 and has been one of the most consistent players not just at Gor Mahia but in the country. He has won the defender of the year title in 2013 and 2014 and has been a mainstay in the starting line up of Harambee stars during this period. Fans will be hoping that the club can keep him.

Fast rising Muhoroni youth forward Ezekiel Otuoma has expressed an interest in joining Gor Mahia.

It will be very happy to move to Gor, it is a big club with big ambitions, they have won back to back league titles and I also want to win the title. I hope both clubs reach an agreement so that I can join K’Ogalo, he said to futaa.com

The pacy Otuoma is one of the players Gor Mahia are seeking as a replacement for the departing Dan Sserunkuma.

Both Gor Mahia and AFC are pursuing Rwandese midfielder Charles Tibingana.

“It’s true I have had contacts from Gor and Ingwe but nothing yet has been reached,” Tibingana said. “However, I welcome any opportunity and would love to venture in Kenya too.” said Tibingana to Kawowo sports.

Tibingana made his national team debut in 2011 yet his listed age is 20. He previously played for Proline and Victoria University in Uganda.

With the season over, attention now turns to the transfer season. This year  Gor Mahia is less active than in past years. One of the players Gor Mahia is rumoured to be targetting is Muhoroni Youth Striker Ezekiel Otuoma. Muhoroni Youth punched way above their weight this season and one of the reasons was Otuoma. The pacy striker gave defenders nightmares with his mazy runs and precise finishes.

Gor Mahia secretary general Chris Omondi indicated that Otuoma was indeed on the club’s radar:

“We have been watching him for some time now and can say he has what we need as a club. He is young and fits in well with our aspirations,”he  saidto goal.com

However Muhoroni Youth Chairman Moses Adagala was categorical that Otuoma is not for sale.

“We want to tell Gor Mahia and any other club that is interested in our players that none of them is for sale. We are inspired by our recent performance in the league and intend to go for the title in 2016.

“In this regard, we intend to keep all our good players as by then they will have matured to a point of fighting for the title.” he said to goal.com

Another player whom Gor Mahia are said to be interested in is Ugandan striker Robert Ssentongo who plays for Uganda Revenue Authority and is the top scorer in the Ugandan league.

Back on the local scene, Mathare United playmaker Harrison Mwendwa is being pursued by both Gor Mahia and AFC.

“It’s true there have been several offers from a number of top teams which I will not mention at the moment but I am yet to negotiate with one,” Mwendwa told Futaa.com.

“I am weighing my options before falling for any deal,” added the Mathare United star.

Mwendwa first rose to prominence in 2010 at the national schools championships. At the time his brilliant play helped steer Jamhuri high school to the national schols final. Most notable was his brace against Waa secondary in the semis. Mwendwa would be a good fit for Gor Mahia who lacked playmaking last season.

Back in 2012, Michael Olunga was the top scorer and MVP of the national schools football tournament. At the time he declared that he was a Gor Mahia fan and wanted to play for the club. Surprisingly Gor Mahia did not pursue him even when Olunga received high praises from experienced coaches like Mohamed Kheri who described him as the next Mike Okoth.

 

Olunga was among the top scorers in the league this season and would be a good fit to play upfront with Timothy Otieno and Blackberry.

Shabana Approached Gor Mahia for help

Newly promoted Shabana FC have approached Gor Mahia for assistance. According to a report posted on futaa.com, Shabana wants Gor Mahia to loan them some of the players who are scarcely used at the club.

“It’s true we have approached Gor Mahia to loan us few of their quality players who have lacked playtime and since they will be preparing for continental football, probably not all of their players have the mettle to feature in such a pressure-mounting competition, the former Congo United and AFC Leopards coach said.

-We are hoping that our proposal will go through since some of their players have the experience to help us locally and warming the bench at the club won’t help them develop as we bolster our ranks for next season.” said Gilbert Selebwa, the Shabana coach.

Among the players who saw little playing time are Joel Bataro, Daniel Onyango, Herbert Kopany and Angelo Okumu. The latter went on loan to Nakuru All Stars but they never used him.
