KIGALI, Rwanda May 4- Rwandese forward Meddie Kagere says he is open to return to SportPesa Premier League champions Gor Mahia just five months after leaving following disagreement over a new contract.

Speaking to Capital Sport from Kigali, Kagere disclosed he has several offers but making a comeback to a club where he was loved and revered will top his agenda.

“I spoke to the Gor Mahia chairman a few weeks back and he told me he is planning for my comeback if I will still be available in June but we didn’t make any agreement. Of course I love Gor, their fans and I am a Gor Mahia fan so I wouldn’t mind returning to the team,” Kagere revealed.

The striker formed a fantastic front three partnership with Michael Olunga and Ali Abondo last season and between them shared 60 goals, part of the reason K’Ogalo won the league unbeaten.

However, after the lapse of his initial one year contract, he could not reach an agreement with the club over renewal and subsequently departed.

He was set to join a top Egyptian club at the start of the year but the deal collapsed.

“It was unfortunate that I got my visa late after the window was closed and the club told me to wait till June, so that is what I am patiently waiting for. There are other deals around but in June I will pick the best,” he added.

Kagere has been shaping his fitness level with his former Rwandese club APR in Kigali and he believes he is still on form and will be ready to dive back into action immediately in June when he finds a club.

A return to Gor will mean a huge shift in the status quo as the current Kenya Premier League rules only allow each team to sign a maximum of five foreign players.

Currently Gor has Jacques Tuyisenge who was a January acquisition from Rwandese club Police FC, countryman Abouba Sibomana, Ugandans Khalid Aucho and Godfrey Walusimbi as well as Burundian right back Karim Nizigiyimana.

Meddie’s arrival must be met with the exit of at least one of the foreign players who are all part of head coach Jose Marcelo Ferreira’s first team.

Marcelo is keen to strengthen his side in the June transfer window but will be faced with a huge headache as to who will be dropped if he is to accommodate Kagere.
