Gor Mahia defender Karim Nizigiyimana is on his way out of the club.

A source close to the player has revealed to Goal that the Burundian is not keen to extend his stay with the Kenyan champions and will leave in January.

Upon returning from injury, Nizigiyimana promised to repay Gor Mahia with loyalty after the club walked with him throughout the entire time he was sidelined for almost one year.

The Burundian defender was sidelined with a tendon tear injury, picked last year against Thika United in the Kenyan Premier League match. “If I start looking for another club at this point, then I will be doing wrong.

“Gor Mahia showed me love by taking care of me when I was nursing an injury. I received my full salary the whole time that I wasn’t playing. Not every club can do whatever they did to me to a player. It’s now my time to repay them. I’m ready to work for Gor Mahia.”

However, it now seems that the player will not stay with K’’Ogalo. “Karim is not keen to extend his stay with Gor Mahia because he doesn’t like the offer they are tabling. He wants to get another club that can give what he wants,” the source told Goal.com.

The defender made his 2018 KPL season debut in Gor Mahia’s 2-1 win against Posta Rangers in Kisumu.
