Ghanaian midfielder Jackson Owusu is among four players dropped by FKF Premier League giants Gor Mahia.

Months after clinching the 2019/20 Kenyan Premier League title K’Ogalo, who have welcomed a host of new faces, have begun the streamlining process of their squad.

Owusu and veteran striker Edwin Lavasta are the most high profile on the exit list as Robertinho looks to build a squad to challenge for the inaugural BetKing Premier League campaign.

Other players released are defender Wellington Ochieng and midfielder Kennedy “Agogo” Otieno who have agreed to mutually terminate their contracts.

Owusu, who joined Gor Mahia in January, fought his way into Steven Polack’s starting team and even featured in the last Mashemeji derby against arch-rivals AFC Leopards in February.

But his relationship with the club management was never rosy as he was in May detained in a city hotel over accrued accommodation bills.

The 31- year-old was a clear fan favourite before early in his K’Ogalo spell having in the past worked with former coach Steve Pollack during his stint at Ghanaian giants Asante Kotoko.

Lavasta, on the other hand, re-joined Gor Mahia on the last day of January transfer window after two underwhelming seasons at Kakamega Homeboyz.

The versatile forward made a mark in his first stint at K’Ogalo as a youngster between 2011 and 2013 when he won the KPL title with Gor after an 18-year hiatus.

He returned to the country after parting ways with MC Alger and joined Bandari in 2016 before moving to Tusker, Mathare United and Wazito.

However, since his return, he featured as a substitute in two league matches against Nzoia Sugar and Western Stima forcing the club to drop him as he couldn’t replicate his form of the past years.

Gor Mahia have brought several players including Burundian Jules Ulimwengu, Ugandan Tito Okello, teenage sensations Benson Omala and Dickson ‘Agwambo’ Raila.
