The local heavyweights have secured the services of the defender, who has been linked with them for some time now.

Nairobi City Stars CEO Patrick Korir has lauded Kennedy Onyango after he completed a transfer move to Gor Mahia.

Vidic, as Onyango is famously known, has signed for the Football Kenya Federation Premier League (FKFPL) champions on a two-year deal. He had been part of the City Stars' setup for the last three seasons.

"He is the kind of player you never want to let go. Good-hearted, straightforward, and the type that just came to the ground, performed his role with a 150 percent commitment, and went home," Korir told the Star.

"He never took losses kindly, he'd go straight to a corner, look down, and never want anyone to talk to him for even up to an hour. The offer from Gor came at a time when he was extending his contract with Simba wa Nairobi for the upcoming season."

"He informed us about the approach, and we sat and reasoned. We gave him our full blessings to make the move, and we wish him the very best as he turns from blue to green."

Onyango is the newest member of the Gor Mahia fraternity, and his confirmed deal comes at a time when Nzoia Sugar revealed their midfielder Kevin Juma had moved to Gor Mahia.

As new signings arrive at K'Ogalo, others have left, and the latest to exit is Dennis Ng'ang'a, who has signed a one-year deal with Zambian Super League side Zanaco. Peter Lwasa and Shafik Kagimu all left just after lifting the Premier League title.
