Lanky midfielder Humphrey Mieno has joined Ethiopian Premier League outfit St.George SC signing a two-year deal with the Addis Ababa based club.

The deal went through last night, just 15 minutes to the closure of the transfer window of the Ethiopian Premier League.

Mieno’s departure has, in the last two weeks, been rumored to be in the offing, but the deal materalised last night, ending his chapter at Kenyan Premier League champions Gor Mahia.

St George is currently coached by Briton Stewart Hall who handled Mieno both at Azam and at Sofapaka and it is on  his recommendation that the club’s executives roped in the Kenya international.

” I can confirm to you is that Mieno(Humphrey)  is a St George’s player.They have his ITC(International Transfer Certificate) and that makes him a St.George player, ” a source privy to the transfer told Citizen Digital on Tuesday.

In a separate interview Gor CEO Lordvick Aduda refuted claims that the club sold the former Sofapaka and Azam man. Aduda says K’Ogalo only released the player after the he requested to leave.

Mieno is set to link up with former Tusker and Harambee Stars keeper Patrick Matasi who joined the same club three months ago.

Mieno did not feature in Gor’s  2-1 win over New Stars de Douala of Cameroon in the CAF Confederation Cup play-off  match at Kasarani Stadium on Sunday, with head coach Hassan Oktay wishing him well.

“He called me and told me he wants a new challenge, I informed him to negotiate with the club and wished him good luck.”

Amid unconvincing results this season, Oktay now remains with Francis Kahata, Bernard Ondiek and Kenneth Muguna as the only creative options in his midfield.
