Gor Mahia star Godfrey Walusimbi is closing in on a move to Kaizer Chiefs.

Goal understands that the Ugandan left back has already held talks with the South African club and that the transfer could be made official after the two clubs agree on terms.

Walusimbi was conspicuously missing from Gor Mahia’s squad that did duty against Posta Rangers in a 2-1 league win at Moi Stadium in Kisumu. The absence has fueled the players’ intentions to quit the Kenyan champions.

“I did not see Walusumbi against Posta Rangers and no one has approached us for his services,” a top Gor Mahia official told Goal on Saturday.

“I will only comment on this issue after I get to know from the technical bench why Walusimbi was missing out. He never misses matches; he did not have an injury so his absence is something that we need to establish the reason first before making any further comments on the transfer.”

Chiefs are said to have picked on the impressive Walusimbi to help strengthen their leaking defence. Walusimbi has been a key player for Gor Mahia especially this campaign, where K’Ogalo are taking part in the Caf Confederation Cup.
