Teenage sensation Benson Omalla has parted ways with Swedish outfit Linkoping City to return to his parent club Gor Mahia.
The 19-year-old has terminated his contract with the Swedish Division One side just weeks into his six-month loan deal and is already training with the record Kenyan champions.

The former Western Stima striker has cited frustration as the sole reason to his failed marriage in Sweden.
“I have been forced to return home because of frustration, I was being played out of position and could not take it anymore,” Omalla is quoted by Goal.com.
Omalla joined Linkoping City in May and his contract was to run until December and was upbeat ahead of the move which he termed as the beginning of a successful journey.
“As a young player, I want to grow and start playing professional football since I have the talent. I trust this will be the beginning of my successful football life,” he said prior to the move.

Omalla was part of the team that trained at Camp Toyoyo on Saturday, Goal.com has reported.
The striker joined K’Ogalo from Western Stima in September 2020, signing a two-year deal but his playing time was limited owing to arrival of Burundi international Jules Ulimwengu and Ugandan-born South Sudan striker Tito Okello.
