Kenya Premier League champions Gor Mahia have completed the signing of Uganda Cranes left back Godfrey Walusimbi even as it extended the contract of four of their key players for two years each.
Walusimbi was formerly at Sports Villa in Uganda but has been released to join the Kenyan Premier League champions after the two clubs agreed on contractual terms.
The Ugandan becomes the second foreign player to sign for Gor Mahia after the club got the signature of Zambian forward Julius Situmbeko. According to Gor Mahia Secretary General George Bwana, more foreign signings are on the way before the current transfer window closes.
“We are looking to strengthen our club in a major way with foreign talent considering that we have a huge assignment next season which includes taking part in the Caf Champions league tournament,” Bwana told Goal.
Walusimbi was part of Uganda Cranes squad that participated in Cecafa Senior Challenge in Kenya. Walumbi’s signing also comes a day after defender Israel Emuge assured club faithful that he has no intentions of quitting and will be part of the squad for next season.
The Ugandan defender, who has been linked with a move away from K’Ogalo, has categorically stated that he will feature for the league champions next season. Emuge wrote on his facebook wall, “Never speculate on anything you don’t know about, I am here to stay.”
