Kiongera agrees to Gor Mahia switch



Gor Mahia have agreed in principle with KCB forward Paul Mungai Kiongera to have him cross over to the 2012 KPL Top Eight champions at the beginning of next season.

Kiongera was KCB’s top-scorer, having netted 10 of the club’s 35 goals in the recently concluded campaign.

He was also runner up in the Kenyan Premier League Footballer of the Year Awards, losing out to Gor Mahia’s Dan Serunkuma.

The imminent switch was confirmed by Gor Mahia’s secretary general George Bwana, who said that they have had extensive talks with the player and officials from his club and that they have reached an agreement.

“We went into negotiations aimed at having the player join us in the new season and I can now confirm that we have made positive headway. We are now working out the details of the contract and we shall soon be putting pen to paper,” said Bwana.

Speaking of the player’s qualities, Bwana described him as a skilful midfielder, one who would be a positive addition to their side.

“We need players of his calibre on our side, and with him joining us, we shall be a very strong side come 2013,” said Bwana.

AFC Leopards had expressed an interest in the player, but have seemingly lost out on their man.
