Reports indicate that the Ivorian ditched Kogalo over financial crisis at the club.

Gor Mahia signed the Ivorian during the last transfer window, as replacement for Jacques Tusiyenge who ditched the club for  Petro de Lounda of Angola.

In a Facebook post, Yanga confirmed acquiring the services of the Ivorian forward.

"Official Yikpe Gnamien Gislain is now a Yanga player. He has signed a two-year contract and will wear jersey number 9," Yanga posted.

Meanwhile, Gor Mahia has vowed to take legal action against Yanga for allegedly violating transfer rules.

Speaking to Nation, Gor Mahia CEO Lordvick Aduda noted that Yanga signed the forward before the official opening of the transfer window.

"He signed a two-year contract which is still valid. Yanga has to follow the right process. The transfer window opens on 1st January and they have to get clearance and a release letter. Let's see what happens then," he said.
