Meddie Kagere has been released by Gor Mahia following a standoff in talks between the two parties as Gor Mahia sought to have him extend his deal.
Meddie joined Gor Mahia at the start of the 2015 season and had a great year, helping Gor Mahia bag the 2015 league title and KPL Top 8 Cup unbeaten.
A post on the Gor Mahia official website confirms the striker will be released after failing to reach an agreement with the club to extend his deal.
“We have tried our best to negotiate with Meddie Kagere but it’s quite unfortunate we will not be able to renew his contract because we can’t meet his high demands,” club chairman Ambrose Rachier is quoted as saying.
The club assistant secretary general Ronald Ngala confirmed the same; “We did not come to an agreement with him so we may not have him,” he is quoted as having said.
Kagere netted 13 league goals for Gor Mahia in the season, the most memorable being against Nakuru AllStars.
Kagere was reportedly the highest earner at Gor Mahia and inner circles at the team indicate he had requested for Kshs 4 million as signing fees to pen a new deal.
