Gor Mahia linked with a move for Ulimwengu

Kenyan Premier League giants Gor Mahia are said to be interested in the services of Burundi striker Jules Ulimwengu according to reports from Rwanda.

Ulimwengu has been a revelation for Rayon Sports and is seen by the Gor Mahia management as the perfect replacement of Rwandese striker Jacques Tuyisenge who is set to join Angola giants Petro Atletico.

According to The Times of Rwanda, Rayon will not release Ulimwengu unless his $150,000 buyout clause is met; the Burundian is remaining with 18 months of his contract with Rayon,


Ulimwengu, 19, moved to Rayon in January this year and is being billed as one of the finest strikers of his age at his age with the player currently with his team in the CECAFA Kagame Cup where Gor Mahia officials have had the opportunity to gauge his abilities.

Ulimwengu scored 12 goals as he inspired Rayon to their ninth Rwanda Premier League title in May- a feat that booked them a spot to the CAF Champions League next season.

Apart from Tuyisenge, Gor Mahia has lost midfielder Cercidy Okeyo, defender Pascal Ogweno, keeper Shaban Odhoji, Francis Kahata, Castro Ogendo, Eris Ssekisambu.
