Gor Mahia defender Wellington Ochieng has signed a contract extension with the reigning Kenyan Premier League champions.

Ochieng was set to run out of contract at the end of June.
“I am excited to get a new deal at Gor Mahia. This is a great club and l will work together with the team and technical staffs to achieve the best,” Ochieng’ told the official Gor Mahia website afer signing the contract.

Kagere joined Tanzanian champions Simba Sc on a two-year deal.
Ochieng is expected to resume full training with the rest of the squad after Cecafa tournament that kicked off on Friday in Tanzania.
