Cape Town - Gor Mahia coach Dylan Kerr has described Godfrey Walusimbi as an exceptionally talented player as the Ugandan edges closer to a Kaizer Chiefs deal.

At the same time, the 51-year-old mentor admitted that he is disappointed with the manner in which the defender is forcing his way to the Soweto giants.

The Kenyan side had initially complained that the Ugandan left-back attended trials at Chiefs without their permission, but Amakhosi have since confirmed that negotiations between the two teams have started.

Chiefs football manager Bobby Motaung on Thursday stated that they have engaged the Kenyan defending champions over the services of the left-back.

The 29-year-old Ugandan is contracted to Mahia until 2020.

Kerr told SuperSport Soccer Africa: "I actually thought he was joking, when he said to me, coach I'm going to South Africa on trial.

"I mean, he is an international player and is a very, very good player. How would an international player and exceptional player go on trials?

"I have always said to my players, be open, honest and transparent. He is on a contract and should talk to the club and not me. I'm just a coach."
