Gor skipper going nowhere
Gor Mahia have dismissed reports that they are preparing to sell influential goalkeeper Jerim Onyango.
Onyango, who is the club’s captain, has been linked with a move to Gor’s perennial rivals AFC Leopards. However, according to the club’s senior vice-chairman David Kiilo, the captain has a contract that runs until July 31 2015.
“He just renewed a two-year deal in June, that means we do not have any plans to release the player. At the moment we cannot consider selling such a dependable player. More so, AFC have not made a formal approach to us,” said Kiilo.
“They should take a leaf from us. As directed by KPL CEO Jack Oguda, all clubs must follow the FIFA transfer rules. They must approach the club first before engaging the player.”
Apart from Leopards, Gor have also warned TPL champions Tusker to stay away from Kenya international defender David Owino.
Owino’s eye-catching performance in the just concluded Cecafa Senior Challenge Cup attracted the interest of Tusker coach Robert Matano, who is on a scouting mission in Uganda.
“You can forget all the transfer speculations you might have heard or read about because they are all wrong,” secretary general George Bwana told the club’s website. “We are not in the business of selling our best players and Tusker should look elsewhere. David is not for sale.’”
