Talismanic Gor Mahia striker Meddie Kagere is reportedly keen to test professional waters in Tanzania but with strings attached.
Yanga of Tanzania was the first team to declare interest in Kagere who, according to a section ofTanzania media, gave them a mind-boggling choice of splashing Ksh 8 million if they wanted his services.
Simba, who were also impressed by Kagere during Gor’s conquest in the just-concluded SportPesa Super Cup, joined the fray in jostling for his signature and are willing to open talks with the much-sought Rwandese striker.
However, Gor deputy secretary Ronald Ngala quashed Kagere’s impending move to the Tanzanian giants, saying the player has a running contract which expires in November, 2018, but was quick to add that the club was ready to negotiate with the either of the suitors if K’Ogalo was to prematurely end the contract
“Kagere’s contractual deal with Go has yet to expire but if indeed Yanga and Simba want his services they should come to us and then we reach to a binding decision,” said Ngala.
In the meantime, Yanga are chasing the signature of Kakamega Homeboyz winger Eston Esiye who starred for the KPL team in the SportPesa Super Cup where they reached the semi-finals.
According to Yanga competitions secretary Hussein Nyika, the team has had fruitful discussions with the player and what is left is for the player to put pen into paper.
Yanga’s technical bench was highly impressed by Esiye during preliminary SpportPesa Super Cup in which the Kenyan club beat the Tanzanians 3-1.
In a related development, Wazito FC have acquired the services of Anthony Njeru and Eric Ochieng fron Nationwide League side KCB.
