Several clubs made last-minute efforts to secure their men ahead of the Kenyan Premier League transfer window shutdown at Sunday midnight.

The greatest concern among Gor Mahia fans, was whether the club had signed Rwandan striker Jacques Tuyisenge. By Sunday evening, the club had not secured the former Rwanda Police player’s International Transfer Certificate, although club officials were optimistic that they would beat the deadline.

“We are yet to get it, but there are people working on that. I am sure we will beat the deadline,” Gor secretary general Ronald Ngala said on Sunday.

POSTA RANGERS

GOtv Shield champions Bandari, Tusker, Ulinzi Stars, league returnees Posta Rangers and were among the first teams to submit their list of players earlier last week having completed their transfer business.

The four teams had given early indications that they were done buying, and they had conducted the unveiling ceremonies for their new players a fortnight before the Sunday midnight’s deadline.

AFC Leopards abandoned their pursuit of Jimmy Bageya and  Gabriel Andika while City Stars managed to rope in former Gor Mahia and KCB striker Ezekiel Odera by Sunday morning.
