Muhoroni Youth defender Wellington Ochieng, becomes Gor Mahia’s second signing of the 2016 mid season transfer season. Ochieng will slot in at right full back where he will compete for playing time with Burundian cross-master Karim Nizigiyimana. This concludes negotiations between Kogalo and Muhoroni Youth.
Ochieng noted that he was elated at joining the club and hopes to be productive.
“I have officially penned down a two-year contract at Gor Mahia. I am happy for making this move and hopeful of a productive stay,” Ochieng’ told goal.com
Ochieng has been a solid defender who is also productive when going forward. He has scored numerous goals for Muhoroni Youth.
Ochieng however is not eligible to play in this weekend’s KPL TOp 8 match against Tusker. This according to KPL president Jack Oguda
“The tournament rules are clear that a player cannot feature for two teams in the same year. So even if Wellington is registered in time, he will still be ineligible having played for Muhoroni Youth in the previous stage of the tournament,” Oguda said to Supersport.
Ochieng is Gor Mahia ‘s second signing following Baron Oketch who joined from Chemelil Sugar.
A large gap will be left by the departure of Khalid Aucho who has been a real engine in the Kogalo midfield. Gor Mahia will be hard placed to find a midfield dyanamo of Aucho’s calibre.
