Kenya: Gor Declare Kiongera Their Player for Next Season

Prolific KCB striker Paul Mungai Kiongera will don the colours of Gor Mahia when the new football season kicks off. The two clubs finally agreed a deal after weeks of negotiations.

"We are very pleased that Kiongera has finally joined us. He is a player we wanted very much and we are glad he will be playing for u,"said Gor official Ronald Ngala

Ngala revealed the player will be unveiled at the Nairobi City Stadium when he returns to the club from national team duties.

The Gor assistant secretary however, did not disclose the details of the deal."I am not at liberty tro give any more details. What I can tell you is that he (Kiongera) is now our player," Ngala said.

KCB vice chairman Agil Ali however, revealed they had agreed a one year loan deal with Gor."The move is 90 percent complete and I can say with certainty that Kiongera will be a Gor Mahia player next year on a season long loan deal, " Ali said.

The agreement brings to a close weeks of speculation about the future of the Kenyatta University student who has emerged as one of the most influential players in the Kenya Premier League season.

He started the season as a bit part player with the bankers but finished it as an indispensabl cog in the KCB's wheel. The national under 23 captain has now been drafted into the Harambee Stars side that returned to camp today for their weekend African Nations Championship return leg clash with Burundi.

Kiongera was the second runners up in the annual Kenya Premie League Footballer of the Year Awards and the third highest scorer.
