“The two clubs have agreed on contractual terms defining the transfer of Tuyisenge and the only thing Gor Mahia is awaiting now is the money agreed to be wired into their accounts.”

Speaking to KT Sports this week, Tuyisenge said, “Everything has been agreed upon by the two clubs. I will be playing for Petro Atletico effective next season,”

Recently, Yanga SC, Simba SC and DR Congo side, AS Vita were among the clubs which were linked with the Rwandan captain.

Gor Mahia captain Harun Shakava and midfielder Francis Kahata are the other players whose contracts are set to expire soon and the KPL champions could lose them on free transfers.
