Gor Mahia Ugandan international striker Danny Sserenkuma is set to attend trials with Danish first division side, HB Koge and will be away effective from this weekend until July 6, 2014.
According to club’s secretary general Chris Omondi, the striker has the blessings of the club executive and successful trials could see him join the Danish side ahead of their July 25 new league season kick-off. HB Koge finished 6th in the Danish first division league last season.
Serunkuma’s imminent departure coupled with the exit of Teddy Akumu and the looming move of Kevin Omondi to South African side, Moroka Swallows has depleted the K’Ogallo squad as they bid to hold onto their Kenya Premier League crown.
So far, Bobby Williamson has only managed to secure two signings with the club having only confirmed the acquisitions of midfielder Collins Okoth and striker Timothy Otieno in the KPL June transfer window. The club has also granted trials to potential recruits who have been training with the champions at City Stadium.
Some of the new players were given a run out during Sunday afternoon friendly match between the Gor and their youth team.
Club officials have also revealed that talks have begun with Ugandan international Robert Ssentongo who is likely to replace his Danish-bound compatriot. Earlier this week, Gor got a mighty reprieve after forward Patrick Oboya was cleared to turn out for the club and will be available to play in second leg of Kenyan Premier League which kicks-off next weekend.
Oboya was cleared after Gor Mahia’s request to apply for another International Transfer (ITC) was accepted. Omondi confirmed to Goal.com that the document will be available this week, allowing Oboya to begin playing for the club. “The document should be with us by Friday.
He has already been cleared and we expect to use him in the second leg.”
Oboya hasn’t been able to play for Gor Mahia since world governing body, Fifa raised doubt about how he joined the local champions as there was no ITC issued from Vietnam where he last played before coming to Kenya.
