Days after losing midfield maestro Francis Kahata to Tanzanian Giants Simba SC, Kenyan Champions Gor Mahia are set to lose another experienced player in the form of George “Blackberry” Odhiambo.
Despite Odhiambo’s contract expiring last month, he is yet to appraoch the Gor Mahia management for talks with regards to a new contract. This is according to Kogallo’s CEO Lordvick Aduda.
“His contract ended in June and he is yet to come and seek negotiations with us. I have not seen him and as the norm when a player’s contract ends, he shows up for negotiations and in this case, Odhiambo has not,” Said Aduda.
“He even did not join the team in the pre-season training before they left for Cecafa.”
Should Odhiambo opt to leave Gor Mahia, he would be the third high-level player to exit the Kenyan Premier League (KPL) champions after Francis Kahata and striker Jacques Tuyisenge who is set to link up with Angolan outfit Petro Atletico.
Odhiambo rejoined Gor Mahia in 2014 after stints with Danish side Randers FC, Kuopion of Finland, Tanzania’s Azam FC, Shirak and Ulisses clubs of Armenia.
Gor Mahia recently completed the signing of Tanzanian pair of Singida United keeper David Kissu and winger Dickson Ambundo from Alliance FC.
The other new signings are: Dennis Oalo, Curtis Wekesa, Tobias Otieno, Elvis Ronack and Abdalla Shira.
