As they will participate in the 2018 CAF Champions League, Kenyan giants Gor Mahia have received a major boost with their key players having renewed their deals.
Striker Jacques Tuyisenge and midfielder Ernest Wendo renewed their contracts with the SportPesa Premier League champions-elect on Tuesday.
The Rwandan forward extended his stay at the club by a further two years while former Bidco United midfielder, Wendo signed a new three-year deal.
The Amavubi forward said he is pleased with his contribution which helped Gor clinch an unprecedented 16th title in his second year at the club.
“It’s my best career moment, I had never won a league title before. I chose to stay on because of the love I have been offered here,” said Tuyisenge.
Meanwhile, the club's CEO Lordvick Aduda added that they aim to hold onto key players as they plot for their next KPL campaign.
“We are privileged to have finished our season early so that we can concentrate on such concerns. We want to ensure we have the strongest and compact squad before submitting their names to CAF in a month’s time,” he added.
