Gor Mahia Captain Harun Shakava’s alleged move to the Zambian Super League continues to be the major talking point across the football circles in Kenya.
Just hours after various reports showed that Shakava had not moved to Nkana FC as it was earlier reported, Gor Mahia chairman Ambrose Rachier has come out to clear the air on the same.
The Kogallo boss has confirmed that Shakava is currently out of the country as he try’s to negotiate with a club in Zambia over a possible move there.
Rachier has however not confirmed the exact club Shakava is negotiating with.
Contrary to reports that Shakava was forcing a move out of Gor, Rachier has revealed that the former Kakamega Homeboyz man requested to leave for Zambia.
According to Rachier, Shakava will be issued with a release letter once he completes his move.
“Shakava has less than six months remaining on his contract with us and he requested we allow him to fly out for negotiations,” Said Rachier as quoted by Goal.
“He is physically in Zambia as we speak to try and get a deal, but he is still our player. Once he reaches an agreement with whatever club he is negotiating with, we will then release him officially,” he added.
Thursday saw Nkana FC CEO Charles Chakatazya confirm that Shakava has not joined the Kitwe based outfit.
“I don’t know a player by that name (Haron Shakava). I’m hearing this for the first time from you. That’s news for me.
“We have not talked to any Kenyan club over a possible transfer of a player from there,” said Chakatazya as quoted by Standard Sports.
Apart from Nkana FC, Shakava has also been linked with a move to Zanaco FC, also of the Zambian Super League and Kenya Premier League Newbies Wazito FC.
Nkana is also the home of Kenyan duo of Musa Mohammed and Duncan Otieno.
