Gor Mahia is in the process of bolstering its squad in a bid to defend its Kenya Premier League (KPL) title and do well in the Caf Champions League.

The KPL champions have acquired the services of two foreign players and several local ones.

The club on Monday announced the arrival of Cameroonian midfielder Bertrand Konfor.

Konfor joined K’Ogalo from Oman First Division League side Almudhaibi FC on a two-year deal.

“Bertrand is a midfielder with a lot of experience in the role having played in many clubs in Cameroon as well as doing his trade in Western Asia and specifically in Oman,” read the part of the statement from the club.

The 24-year-old is optimistic his new side will show a scintillating performance in all competitions next season.

“It feels good to join Gor Mahia knowing it’s one of the best clubs in Africa. I am here to help the club win titles both locally and internationally and I believe with the help of my team-mates and technical staff, we will do it,” said Konfor.

Gor had also signed striker Tito Okello from Ugandan champions Vipers SC FC on a three-year deal.

Locally, the team has acquired the services of goalkeepers Samuel Njau and Levy Opiyo from Western Stima and Nairobi City Stars respectively.

Other signings are defender Andrew Juma (Mathare United), midfielder Sydney Ochieng (Western Stima), and winner John Macharia who was plying his trade in Georgia.

The Kenyan side had witnessed an exodus of key players as its financial woos persist. Some of them are Joash Onyango, Boniface Omondi, David Mapigano, and Peter Odhiambo.

Rules allow every club to purchase up to 5 foreign players and now Gor have 3 foreigners, the two new signings, and Ghanaian midfielder Jackson Owusu.
