Former Gor Mahia coach Dylan Kerr is close to signing for Black Leopards.

The Briton tactician left the Kenyan champions, just a few weeks before they launch their campaign in the Caf Champions League, where they have been drawn to face Nyasa Big Bullets from Malawi in the preliminary stage.

A close source to the coach has now revealed to Goal that, Kerr, who served as an assistant coach at Mpumalanga Black Aces, will be unveiled this week.

“Kerr has already arrived in South Africa to agree terms with Black Leopards. The club have settled for the former Gor Mahia coach after Luc Eymael turned down an offer to take over.”

Lidoda Duvha have been on the hunt for a new head coach since parting ways with Joel Masutha just before the start of the international break. The exit of Kerr also left Gor Mahia searching for a new coach with former Free State Stars man Luc Eymael among those, who have been contacted.

Eymael confirmed to Goal on Monday that he had been approached by K’Ogalo. “I spoke to the club chairman (Rachier) two times on November 15 but since then, there is no news. He told me that he will get back but I have not heard from him again. I will consider the Gor Mahia offer because they are a good club.”
