Gor sign Kenyan starlet Kibiti
Gor Mahia have handed Kenya Under-20 national team player Simeon Wanyonyi Kibiti a two-year contract, as they continue revamping their squad ahead of the new season.
Wanyonyi was recruited from the Qatar-based Aspire Academy and he becomes Gor’s fifth signing in the current transfer window.
He is expected to join the team in training at the City Stadium on Monday 7 January. Confirming the signing, the club’s team manager Iddi Salim expressed confidence in the player’s ability, saying his entry will give the club a striking edge.
“We have been observing the player for some time now. He is a very talented young player and he fits the profile of the calibre of players we had set out to acquire during this window and we have no doubt that he will come in to play a key role in helping us achieve the objectives for the year,” said Salim.
So far Gor have brought in four other players. They are: Paul Mungai Kiongera (signed from KCB), David Otieno(Western Stima), Abbey Natty Kunrumi (Muhoroni Youth) and Zachary Onyango (Coffee Board, Ethiopia).
Gor finished the 2012 season ranked second in the Premier League and won two cups.
