The K'Ogalo star, who scored 14 goals for the Kenyan champions last season, is now linked with a move to top African giants

Gor Mahia striker Jacques Tuyisenge could follow coach Dylan Kerr to South Africa.

The K’Ogalo point man, who scored 14 goals for the Kenyan league champions last season, is now linked with a move to the South African Premier League side Mamelodi Sundowns, can authoritatively reveal.

According to the player’s agent, Jean Karekezi, the Rwandan international, who has one year left in his current contract, is also on the shopping list of top African giants including TP Mazembe.

“I think he (Tuyisenge) has outgrown playing in KPL right now. He’s the best striker in Kenya currently and he should move to another league to prove that he’s among the top players in the continent.

“We already have two offers in South Africa and Congo and we will have to settle for one, possibly by the end of next week,” Karekezi told  in an exclusive interview.

“If a team like TP Mazembe and Sundowns want you, you have got to listen to them,” added Karekezi, who is a Fifa accredited player agent.

Tuyisenge was initially set to join a team in Morocco but the deal flopped after Gor Mahia refused to release their top striker in the build-up to their trip to Liverpool, England where they played EPL side Everton.

Tuyisenge did not travel together with Gor Mahia to UK because of 'Visa issues', but Goal has since established that the Rwandese striker was involved in talks for a possible move away from K'Ogalo.

Gor Mahia are set to host Nyasa Big Bullets in a Caf Champions League match on November 28 but if the deal goes through, then this could be the last time that K’Ogalo fans will have a chance to watch the club’s top scorer.
