Tusker FC midfielder, Humphrey Mieno has handed in a transfer request in order for force a move to the Kenya Premier League champions Gor Mahia.

K’Ogalo team manager Jolawi Obondo confirmed to Citizen Digital the club’s interest in the midfielder who is still in the books of the league leaders.

‘’There is interest from our side but he has to clear with Tusker first. He wrote to them that he wants to terminate the contract and then we can now talk,” Obondo disclosed.

Mieno has been viewed as the replacement for Ugandan midfielder Khalid Aucho who is heavily linked with a move to South Africa’s Premier Soccer League side Bidvest Wits.

“It’s not yet confirmed and we cannot comment on that issue and for now he is not going anywhere,” the team manager said of the midfielder who scored for the Uganda Cranes in the Afcon qualifiers last weekend.

The record 15-time champions are also debating on whether to make the return of former Rwanda international Meddie Kagere official since he has been training with team for some time.

The arrival of Brazilian striker, Thiago da Silva last week means the future of the attacker who scored 11 goals for the club as they matched to the KPL title unbeaten last season now rests with head coach Marcelo ‘Ze Maria’ Fereira.

“It’s up to the coach to decide. Meddie has been part of us but the window is still open and he may or may not join us,” the official told.
