Free agent Vianne Ssekajugo is set to Join Vipers Sports Club from Onduparaka Football Club.

Ssekajugo declined to the option of renewing his contract at Onduparaka where he has spent two stellar seasons.

If it all goes according to plan, Kyetume FC will be signing Yayo Lutimba from Vipers Sports Club.

The left-back fell out of favour at the Kitende based side and he has been one of the players Kyetume are courting. 

Lutimba has been training with the Mukono based side and is set to put pen to paper on a one-year employment contract.

Reports coming out of Wankulukuku indicate that Express Football Club has agreed to terms with veteran striker Edirisa Kaye, defender Martin Kizza and another upcoming star in Peter Mutebi. 

The six-time champions had parted ways with over seven players from last season and are in a race to have a strong competitive side ahead of the 2019/2020 season. 

According to reports Uganda Cranes Winger Abdu Lumala will be unveiled at Pyramids FC in Egypt on Saturday. Lumala is currently plying his trade at Kalmar FF who loaned him at Syrianska last season.

URA FC have brushed their squad by offloading up to nine players as a way of creating space for their new recruits.

The released players include Robert Omonuk, Matthew Tayo Odong, Abdullah Nyanzi, Salim Munaku Wekiya, Charles Sempa, Derrick Ochen, Ronald Musana, Peter Lwasa and Allan Mugalu.

It is believed that the above players failed to impress the club’s head coach Sam Ssimbwa and therefore the club decided to terminate their contracts on mutual consent.
