Kenyan Premier League giants, Gor Mahia have completed the signing of Tanzanian pair of Singida United keeper David Kissu and winger Dickson Ambundo from Alliance FC.
Ambundo joins the club on a one-year loan deal while Kassu has penned a three-year deal with the club and will head to Rwanda with the rest of Gor Mahia squad for Cecafa Kagame Cup that will be staged in Kigali Rwanda starting from Saturday 6th.
Ambundo is a speedy winger and is expected to give coach Hassan Oktay options on the flanks. He scored 12 league goals for his side last season. Kassu on the other hand is expected to beef up the goalkeeping department . He was Singida’s second choice keeper last season.
The pair’s arrival means Gor Mahia will have to part ways with at least one foreign player to create room for the duo. Currently, Gor Mahia has four foreign players in Shafik Batambuze, Hashim Sempala, Francis Mustafa and Erisa Sekisambu. The KPL foreign quota rule allows a club to have five foreigners in their books at one given time.
Reports indicate that Ugandan duo of Erisa Ssekisambu and Hashim Sempala could be axed by the club. Ssekisambu joined the club at the start of 2018/19 campaign while Sempala was signed in March from rivals Tusker FC.
The two signings takes the number of new players at Gor Mahia to seven after the club confirmed five new players earlier this week. The other new signings are: Dennis Oalo, Curtis Wekesa, Tobias Otieno, Elvis Ronack and Abdalla Shira.
Meanwhile the club has lost two key players. Striker Jacques Tuyisenge left for Angolan giants Petro Atletico while midfielder Francis Kahata joined Tanzanian giants Simba on Thursday.
