15 January 2020

Highly-rated Gor Mahia midfielder Tobias Otieno has joined US third tier side Union Omaha.

The American club took to Twitter to announce the capture of the defensive midfielder who joined K'Ogalo from Sony Sugar mid last year.

Gor Mahia will however not gain even a single cent from the move as Otieno is technically a free player having not been paid for over two months.

His contract too had a clear exit clause.

Gor Mahia is struggling to keep its best players due to the financial crisis after the exit of gaming firm SportPesa who were the club's sponsor.
