Gor Mahia CEO Omondi Aduda has insisted that the club is not ready to do any transfer business. “Simba signed Meddie Kagere because he was a free agent and should now keep off our players.

"We have a tight schedule ahead of us and losing our key players will affect the team. We are not ready to listen to any offers for any player.”

Simba SC have already unveiled Kagere, who signed a two-year contract.
