Gor Mahia midfielder George ‘Blackbbery’ Odhiambo has signed a contract extension with the champions.
‘Blackberry’ had run down his contract with the league champions and was a transfer target for a number of teams in Europe among them KF Tirana of Albania.
However, Gor Mahia CEO Omondi Aduda has exclusively revealed to Goal that Odhiambo has opted to stay with K’Ogalo after penning a one and half year contract.
“Blackbbery’ has committed to Gor Mahia after agreeing to sign a one and half year contract extension. He was the only player, who was yet to extend his stay after his contract had run down but I can confirm now that he will be with us next season.
“As we speak, he (Odhiambo) has travelled to Nakuru to join the rest in pre-season training. I now believe that the team is ready and good to go.”
Aduda also confirmed that Gor Mahia have officially released midfielder Jeane Baptiste Muginareza, who has since signed for APR of Rwanda.
Muginareza, who joined K’Ogalo last season from Tanzania’s Azam FC but could not cement his place in the title winning squad, has left on mutual agreement. “We could not stand on his way because he wanted a transfer move for more playing time.
“We have officially released the player and from what I am gathering is that he has signed for APR. We want to wish him well for whatever he did for our club and respect his choice.”
Aduda also confirmed that midfielder John Ndirangu has agreed to join Kakamega Homeboyz on a one year loan deal.
