“I’ve been reading the rumors surrounding the deal most of which are driven by malice, but I can assure you that soon you will hear good news,” the FIFA Intermediary told Kahawa Tungu.
“Two weeks ago we received the boy’s work permit, a huge step in the move, we are now waiting for his social media accounts to be verified as a standard requirement by the US embassy before he gets a visa,” he added.
Meanwhile, Otieno, who is still in the country has been keeping fit as per instructions from Union Omaha.
“They sent us a training regime including gym and ball work which the boy has been using to keep in shape.”
Signed from Sony Sugar at the beginning of the 2019-20 Kenyan Premier League season, Tobias quickly cemented his place at the heart of Gor Mahia field, catching the attention of many watchers with his skills and tenacity.
The 21-year-old is touted as a future senior national team player.
