Kariobangi Sharks right winger Ovella Ochieng is one of the players on Gor Mahia’s tadar for the upcoming June transfer season.
CEO Omondi Aduda confirmed that coach Kerr is interested in the player.
“I can say yes…partly because the coach likes the player. He watched him play once but then he disappeared but for now there is nothing official about the player because the transfer window is still closed.” said Aduda to goal.com
Aduda further went on to say that the club is waiting for the first leg to conclude before focusing on transfers.
“We are waiting for the first leg to conclude then we will meet the coach and his staff to discuss where we need to buy. All we want is to avoid making panic buys because, fans are asking or demanding that we strengthen.” he concluded.
Ovella Ochieng was one of the most impressive players when Harambee Stars won the most recent CECAFA senior challenge cup, using his speed down the flanks to create chances and also cutting inside in a manner similar to Arjen Robben of Bayern Munich.
Ovella could add much needed sharpness to the Gor Mahia attack which has stagnated in recent matches
Another player whom K’Ogalo could pursue is defender Musa Mohamed. The former skipper is in training camp with Harambee stars. Sofapaka owner Elly Kalekwa says he has also initiated talks with Musa.
Maqbul Mohamed sues Gor Mahia

Footballer Karim Makbul has sued Kenya Premier League holders Gor Mahia for terminating his contract incommunicado at the end of 2017.
The left-back was signed on January 12, 2017 from Jericho Allstars after elders of the club petitioned the champions to employ the services of at least one of their players since they hosted Gor Mahia at Camp Toyoyo.
Despite Makbul penning a four-year deal with Gor under former coach Zi Maria Pereira, he never made the cut for 18 consecutive league matches and was consequently listed for a loan stint in June last year at Wazito , then Nakumatt but none materialised.
Karim told the Sports Disputes Tribunal, that he only trained with Wazito FC for one day and that Nakumatt FC’s coach told him he was not in his plans with three days to the closure of transfer window, Makbul said:
“I boarded a bus to coast for trials at Mombasa Stima and I was told there’s no space. At Modern Coast, I was late according to the coach there,” he said.
His contract indicates in article six that the club would terminate the contract in the case that he does not perform to the expectation of the club or he misbehaves. But testifying in Defence of Gor Mahia, team manager Ludovic Aduda intimated that the player has absconded training since January 2018 thus the club could not pay him.
