Defending Kenya Premier League champions Gor Mahia are determined to keep midfielder Kenneth Muguna at the club despite growing reports that he will leave for free once his contract expires at the end of the year.

The former Gor captain has recently been linked with a move to Tanzanian giants Simba & Yanga SC. He was previously linked with a move to Petro De Atletico of Angola.

Gor Mahia CEO Lordvick Aduda has now made it clear that the record Kenyan champions are in talks with the former Western Stima man with the hope of tying him down to another deal.

“We are in talks because we want to retain him, he is a good player and at Gor Mahia we want to keep all our best players. The technical team is currently handling the issue, they will then advise the executive and from there we will know the way forward but yes we want to retain Muguna,” Aduda told Mozzart Sports.

Speaking to journalists on April 10th after getting his Covid-19 vaccine, Muguna said that he is at the moment focused on Gor Mahia and will decide on his future when the right time comes.

“I still have 6 months left on my contract and I wouldn’t want to comment on my future just yet. I am enjoying everything at the moment and will make a decision at the end of the season” he said.
