Cape Town - Gor Mahia have revealed they have allowed star striker Michael Olunga to travel to South Africa to undergo a trial with PSL side Bidvest Wits.

The forward arrived in the southern hemisphere country on Monday and has already started training with the Students, who have been alerted to his talents following some impressive displays in the Kenyan Premier League this season.

Gor Mahia chairman Ambrose Rachier confirmed the news, telling SuperSport: "Yes, we gave Michael Olunga permission to travel to South Africa for trials with Bidvest Wits after they sent a request letter.

"He is still our player until 2016 and we will be very involved in case of any outcome. He will be away for a week and we have given them him our blessings."

Olunga is the second Kenyan to undergo trials with Wits this term, with Jesse Were, the KPL's current top scorer with 19 goals, having failed to impress during a period in Johannesburg.
