Hull City are gathering information on Gor Mahia defender Harun Shakava before deciding on whether to bid for his services, Nairobi News has established.

The English side are said to have been impressed with the capabilities of the Kenya international during the friendly match pitting these two teams at Kasarani last Sunday.

Although he missed the first penalty for his team during the post-match shootout, Shakava had a great game at the heart of K’Ogalo’s defence.

He effectively marked out the likes of Fraser Campbell, Jarod Bowen and Jon Toral from the game.

IMPRESSED

“I am told the way it works with English clubs is that they cannot sign you after watching you for only one game. They will have to study your background, videos, work rate, discipline, and possibly invite you for trials before making a decision,” a source told Nairobi News.

In his pre-match press conference on Saturday, Hull City coach Nigel Adkins said he was keen to offer opportunities to the Gor Mahia players who impress him during the game.

“We are looking to recruit ahead of next season. We have some players who have been here on loan and have left the club and others are out of contract,” Adkins said.

“(Gor Mahia coach Dylan) Kerr has asked me to look out for some quality lads in his team and you never know what might come out of it. Overall, there is no pressure, this is an opportunity to grow Kenyan football and play football,” he added.

The 26-year-old lanky defender started out at Vihiga High School, before joining Kakamega Homeboyz from where he made the move to K’Ogalo.
