Tusker chase Stars' duo
Kenyan Premier League (KPL) champions Tusker FC are reportedly chasing the signatures of AFC Leopards winger Paul Were and Gor Mahia forward Kevin Omondi.
The duo are on loan at their respective top flight clubs from Nairobi Provincial League side Fisa and an official who sought anonymity, has confirmed that indeed Tusker have approached them with a view to sign the pair for the upcoming 2013 campaign.
“Tusker through their assistant chairperson (Charles Obiny) have made an enquiry about Were and Omondi,” the source said.
“But nothing concrete has been discussed yet and we told him (Obiny) that we could talk about the issue maybe next week after the Cecafa tournament,” the source added.
Were and Omondi were recently thrown out of the Harambee Stars CECAFA Senior Challenge Cup squad after they spent a night on the town after the team’s 2-0 win over South Sudan.
However, they apologised and could return to Kampala, Uganda if given the green light by coach James Nandwa.
Were joined AFC Leopards after the club agreed on a one-year loan agreement with Fisa during the mid-season transfer window. He previously played for Tusker. Omondi was in fine form for Gor Mahia, especially during the second leg of the recently concluded season.
