A reliable source has revealed to Goal that the former Uganda Cranes tactician arrived in Nairobi on Thursday and held talks with K'Ogalo's top brass

Former Uganda Cranes coach arrived in Nairobi on Thursday and held talks with Gor Mahia officials over a possible move to the club.

Though club officials were unavailable to confirm what had been agreed upon, sources confirmed the Scot jetted into the country at 9a.m.

“He (Williamson) has arrived and he is now going to a hotel to meet Gor officials to begin discussions,” a source, who sought anonymity told Goal.

Neither Gor Mahia chairman Ambrose Rachier nor the club’s Secretary General George Bwana were available for a comment.

The source said if all goes well, Williamson will be unveiled on Friday morning as the new Gor Mahia coach.

Williamson, steered Uganda to four Cecafa titles in five years. Other coaches who have shown interest in handling the club are Serbians Damilo Doncic, Momcilo Medic and Zoran Pefic, Irishman Amrore Oghenerwede Zion and Englishman Dave Booth.

Gor Mahia job fell vacant two weeks ago following the sacking of Croatian Zdravko Logarusic, who failed to return back to Kenya from holiday.

In his absence, assistant coach John “Bobby” Ogolla took over on an acting capacity and the ex-international has been in charge of the team over the last three games winning one and drawing two.
