 SHAKAVA SET TO JOIN NKANA FC OF ZAMBIA


Outgoing Gor Mahia captain Harun Shakava is set to join Zambian side Nkana FC.

A close source to the player has revealed to Goal the towering defender has all but agreed to join the Kitwe-based club.

In an exclusive interview with Goal before, Shakava had earlier confirmed his unwillingness to extend his current contract beyond December 2019 and it is now almost certain he will join the Faz Super League club.

"This is a deal that is 99% done and Shakava will join Nkana in due course. He also has the blessings from Gor Mahia who are ready to hand him his release letter," the source told Goal.

Gor Mahia have already signed another centre-back Maurice Ojwang from Western Stima to fill Shakava's void. While at Nkana, Shakava will partner once more with his former Gor Mahia captain Musa Mohamed who joined the club in July 2018.

 GOR MAHIA SIGN OJWANG FROM WESTERN STIMA


Gor Mahia have signed defender Maurice Ojwang from Western Stima.

The club's Chief Executive Officer Lordvick Aduda has confirmed they have completed the signing of the centre-back from the Kisumu-based outfit.

"It is true we have signed Ojwang and he will be with us for the next three years," Aduda told Goal in an interview.

Ojwang bolsters the Kenyan Premier League (KPL) reigning champions while centre-back and club captain Harun Shakava is set to leave.


 WHYVONNE ISUZA RESPONDS TO EXIT RUMOURS


AFC Leopards midfielder Whyvonne Isuza has denied reports linking him with a move away from the club this transfer window.

Wazito were reported to have their eyes on the midfielder as they look to build an experienced side for the 2019/20 Kenyan Premier League (KPL) season.

However, the former Mathare United player insists he will remain at Ingwe, who are looking to improve on their 11th-place finish from the previous term.

"I am not going anywhere, anyone linking me away from the club is misled. First, I signed a new contract with Leopards last season, and secondly, Wazito have not approached me with the intention to get my services," Isuza told Goal.

"This is the season we at AFC Leopards want to give absolutely everything and at least win something. I want to be part of that and anything that is not related is meant to divert my attention which is not the case."


 WARURU AND OKOTH TRAINS WITH KCB


Kenyan Premier League side KCB are reportedly close to signing Stephen Waruru and Collins Okoth.

Waruru and Okoth have been spotted with KCB on pre-season training. Waruru left Sofapaka after his contract ended in June and is now a free agent and could be on his way to a third KPL club if the rumours he is joining KCB are true.

Okoth has not been with a club since parting ways with AFC Leopards in April 2018 after a turbulent time at the Den.

 DWANG'S MOVE TO POSTA RANGERS HITS A SNAG


Jackson Dwang's move to join Posta Rangers from Nzoia Sugar has stalled as the player and Rangers have failed to agree on money matters.

"He was set to move on but the salary Posta Rangers quoted in the negotiations was too small. Dwang wants it improved or he is ready to stay at Nzoia Sugar until next season in the hope that a better deal will come," the source said.

After one year in Zambia, Rupia could return to the Kenyan Premier League, this time around with Wazito. Rupia joined the Faz Super League side Power Dynamos in July 2018 but failed to force his way into the team on a regular basis. He had joined Power Dynamos from Nzoia Sugar.


 GOR MAHIA SET TO LOSE KEY MIDFIELDER


Gor Mahia are set to lose another experienced player in George Odhiambo.

"His contract ended in June and he is yet to come and seek negotiations with us. I have not seen him and as the norm when a player's contract ends, he shows up for negotiations and in this case, Odhiambo has not," Aduda said.
