The future of Liberian defender Dirkir Glay at his club Gor Mahia is yet to be known despite interest from South African Premier Soccer League (PSL) side Mpumalanga Black Aces.
Glay ditched Thika United for Gor Mahia at the beginning of the season but has not been a regular player in Frank Nuttal’s team blossoming in the Kenyan Premier League (KPL), managing only three league appearances and two other in the CECAFA Kagame Cup and GOtv Shield versus Yanga SC and Lang’ata Gremio respectively.
However, reports within the camp reveal that the player was not registered to feature in the KPL in order for the club to abide by the foreign quota rule of five foreigners at each club.
The Liberian international, who earned his second cap in a 1 – 0 win over Tunisia in the Africa Cup of Nations (AFCON) Group ‘A’ qualifier on Sunday 6 September has been trying out with the South African side for the last two weeks and is expected to put pen to paper in the course of the week.
“He was here the last two weeks. He has gone back home for the national team but is returning back this week,” a source at the Johannesburg based side told Kickoff.
Aces coach Muhsin Ertugral had also confirmed of the possibility of roping in a Liberian defender – Glay to join compatriot Kpah Sherman who signed a three year contract from Tanzanian side Yanga SC in August 2015.
To K’Ogalo, as far as they are concerned, Glay is still their player.
“Glay (Dirkir) is still our player. We are not aware of any move down South. As Gor Mahia and as far as we know, he is part of us,” club acting Secretary General Ronald Ngala told Soka earlier on.
Should he successfully complete the move, he will join Zambian Collins Mbesuma, Kpah Sherman among other foreign players at the club. culled from www.Soka.ko.ke
