Gor Mahia chairman Ambrose Rachier says they are yet to complete the signing of any player even as the club’s official website reported that the team had snapped up goalkeeper Levi Opiyo and released midfielder Dickson Ambundo upon the expiry of his loan spell.

Rachier who doubles up as the Kenyan Premier League chairman says they are still awaiting  the task force report, formed by Sports CS Amina Mohamed to study and recommend the possible modalities of sports resumption in the country.

Rachier says they will give transfer details once the report is out and after KPL will have cleared the air on when the transfer window will open.

“We are waiting for the final report from the Joe Okudo led committee constituted by Sports CS Ambassador Amina Mohammed to look into modalities of sports resumption in the country,’’ explained Rachier.

Rachier indicated that even the deal with keeper Levis Opiyo is far from over, adding that they have not paid(sign-on fee)to the former Nairobi City Stars custodian even though he admitted they have made some progress which will be completed at the time sports resume.

Opiyo has played for one foreign club in his career, the lower league in Germany, Fortuna Babelsberg.

He has also featured for Posta Rangers, Mathare United, Mahakama FC, Thika United, Sofapaka, Western Stima and Vihiga United.

Meanwhile Rachier erased fears of possible departure of Tanzanian international custodian David Mapigano saying Mapigano is in Gor to stay.

“David Mapigano has been so instrumental to the club and releasing him can be the last thing we can do. The idea of signing Levis Opiyo came after Keeper Fredrick Odhiambo requested to be released to Join Wazito,’’he explained.

Sources have however intimated to Citizen Digital that Mapigano is on the radar of Tanzanian side Yanga SC who are eager to sign him after reportedly falling out with Kenyan custodian Farouk Shikhalo.
