Gor Mahia will however not gain even a single cent from the move as Otieno is technically a free player having not been paid for over two months.
His contract too had a clear exit clause.
Gor Mahia is struggling to keep its best players due to the financial crisis after the exit of gaming firm SportPesa who were the club’s sponsor.
