Gor Mahia traded the least while struggling sides Chemeli Sugar and Thika United were the busiest teams during the Kenyan Premier League mid-season transfer window.

The window shut close on Monday midnight, leaving a total of 249 players exchanging clubs. Chemelil was the busiest on the market after bringing on board 19 players to replace the 13, who left in June.

Out of the 19, only two; Gideon Kibet, who moved from Vihiga United and William Oricho, signed from Zoo FC, came from the upper tier. The rest were either promoted from the club junior ranks or fetched from other lower division club.

Chemelil were followed by Thika United, who brought on board 18 new faces, out of which, only Derick Nzosi has KPL experience. The rest were scouted from lower league sides like Ruiru Sports Academy, Tusker Youth, Bidco United and Thika United Youth Academy.

Bottom-placed Wazito lost 15 players but brought on board one bringing to 31 the total number of transfer dealings transacted by the club in the month of June alone.

Sony Sugar, who are just placed above Wazito, also had a fat transfer book after bringing on board 16 new faces, four of them, who crossed from Chemelil.

Goalkeeper John Waw, Kelvin Wesonga, Collins Neto, Maxwell Onyango all, who crossed from Chemeli are among the new signings that also include former AFC Leopards star Ezekiel Otuoma and former Gor Mahia and Bandari forward Enock Agwanda, who was signed from Ushuru.

On the contrary, while struggling teams were busy revamping squad with an embarrassingly huge number of players either being offloaded or brought in, league leaders, Gor Mahia only had a place for one player into their rank.

Gor Mahia, who are top of the table with 49 points, only signed Burundian forward Francis Mustapha as a replacement to Meddie Kagere, who signed for Simba SC of Tanzania. K’Ogalo also renewed the contract of defender Wellington Ochieng’ for a further three years.
