Gor Mahia have admitted that Algerian club CS Constantine are keen to sign Francis Kahata.

Club chairman Ambrose Rachier confirmed on Monday that the Algerian outfit have officially written to the player (Kahata) requesting that he attends trials for assessment and a possible transfer.

“Kahata came to me with a letter from Constantine that is written in French. The club is asking the player to get time and travel for trials but as Gor Mahia, we have asked the player to write to the club and request them to write to us.

“It will be fair if they deal with us in regards to Kahata because the player cannot leave minus our approval. We are waiting to see if they will get back to us. That is the only club that has reached out to sign Kahata, I have not heard from any other club, not even USM Alger nor Black Leopards.”

Club Sportif Constantinois also known as CS Constantine or simply CSC for short, is an Algerian club based in Constantine, Algeria. The club was founded in 1898 and its colours are green and black. Their home stadium, Stade Mohamed Hamlaoui, has a capacity of 45,000 spectators. The club is currently playing in the Algerian Ligue Professionnelle 1.

On Sunday, Goal reported that Algers are willing to pay Sh8million to sign the player. Gor Mahia are also in the process of losing striker Jacques Tuyisenge to either Mamelodi Sundowns of South Africa or TP Mazembe of Congo. The players’ agent, Jean Karekezi exclusively told on Saturday that the transfer could be sealed before the end of next week.

However, Rachier dismissed the transfer involving Tuyisenge saying they have not been approached. “We have not been approached in regards to Tuyisenge. I am only reading this in social media.”

Gor Mahia are set to host Nyasa Big Bullets in a Caf Champions League match on November 28 (Wednesday) at the Kasarani Stadium.
