Kenyan Premier League giants Gor Mahia are fighting to keep the services of talisman Jacques Tuyisenge who is  wanted by Rwandan powerhouse, APR.

Tuyisenge, a cog in Dylian Kerr’s smooth sailing side has just three months left on his contract and K’Ogalo face the prospect of losing him for nothing when the transfer window opens in December.

Citizen Digital can authoritatively report that APR have sent a link man who is in Nairobi to negotiate a deal with the lethal attacker .He has so far scored nine league goals for the 15-time champions this term.

Tuyisenge has been secretly negotiating the deal with the aim of returning to his homeland in January when his contract runs out.The link man will be aiming to tie the loose ends.

However, Citizen Digital understands that the Kenyan glamour club, panicked by the developments, has reacted fastest and is making last ditch efforts to convince their vice-skipper to extend his stay.

Tuyisenge, 26, a popular figure within the club confines, joined the coasting K’Ogalo at the beginning of last term after impressive performances with his national team at the 2015 Cecafa Senior Challenge Cup in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia.

Prior to docking at K’Ogalo, he featured for Police FC in his country’s domestic league. K’Ogalo’s Number Nine is the highest earner at the club taking home north of Sh 180,000.

“As a club we are talking to him. We do not want a situation where we lose him for free .We are therefore trying to reach a common ground,” a club source who requested anonymity told Citizen Digital.

Should K’Ogalo fail to hold onto their star man, it would come as a blow bearing in mind that they’re likely to return to the continental football scene next term.
