Kenya Premier League champions Gor Mahia are known for exporting talents to foreign teams with recent high profile sales being Jacques Tuyisenge and Francis Kahata.

Tuyisenge moved to Angolan giants Petro Atletico in a mega-money deal while Kahata is reported to have concluded a move to Tanzanian side Simba SC in a Ksh 4 million deal.

But Mathare United have also shown just how much talent they can produce by exporting one of their own to a foreign League.

According to Egyptian website Kingfut .com, striker Cliff Nyakeya has joined Fc Masr of Egypt.

Masr are a newly promoted side in the Egyptian Premier league who secured promotion for the first time since their founding in 2009.

They have been clawing themselves up the Egyptian tier system since they joined the fourth division a decade ago and it has been a tough journey for them.
