Gateri attending trials at Sunderland



Harambee Stars international David Gateri has secured a two-week trial at English Premier League side Sunderland.

The striker who made his debut for Kenya against Libya in March in a friendly match is currently in England seeking to impress the Wearsiders.

“He is currently attending trials at the club and he is close to finishing them before he is evaluated,” a reliable source told supersport.com.

When contacted for comment on the development, his side ASD Cape Town declined to shed more light on the issue.

“We can confirm that it is true but we cannot comment on the current developing story in regards to his trial,” the club said.

Sunderland has over the years shown interest in Africa through their initiative that has seen them print their shirts ‘Invest in Africa’ as they seek to forge a relationship that will create opportunities and benefits in the continent.

Some of the African players that have donned the shirt include: Asamoah Gyan, Sulley Muntari, Ahmed Elmohamady, John Mensah and Stephane Sessegnon.

Gateri previously played for Nairobi City Stars before moving to South Africa. He featured for Vapor FC then joined World Hope following his brilliance that saw him win National Secondary Schools title with Lang’ata High School in 2009.
