Immediate former Nairobi City Stars keeper Levis Opiyo has confirmed that he has joined Kenyan Premier League giants Gor Mahia.
Opiyo was a key figure for the Kawangware based side as they gained promotion to the Kenyan Premier League but according to the club’s CEO Mr Patrick Korir, the player had asked to explore other opportunities.
“He ran down his contract and expressed his wish to explore other opportunities as opposed to renewing it,” Korir told Futaa.
Opiyo had strongly been linked with a move to Gor Mahia in the past week with rumours rife that the Kenyan giants might lose the services of the duo of Fredrick Odhiambo who is a target for Wazito FC and David Mapigano whose future at the club remains uncertain.
In a Facebook post, Opiyo noted: "New challenge, Gor Mahia will be my new home. I would like to thank all the family of Nairobi City Stars for the good season we had and now as I look forward to another experience with my new team GOR MAHIA I pray for blessing.
"Thanks to my fans and supporters.
Opiyo has a wealth of experience in the Kenyan Premier League having featured for clubs like Mathare United, Posta Rangers and Western Stima.
Opiyo leaves City Stars after missing only two games in the entire season with the club now left with Jacob Osano and Ronny Kagunzi as their only keepers.
