David Owori is without a doubt one of SC Villa’s most outstanding players this season, something that has lured a number of top flight clubs to scramble for his signature even when the season is yet to climax.
The situation has been further catalysed by the fact that Owori’s contract at the 16-time UPL champions expires at the end of this month (May), something that has put Villa in panic mode.
Football256 understands that a number of local clubs have been monitoring Owori’s contract situation at the Villa Park with BUL FC, KCCA FC, Express FC being the frontrunners to capture his signature.
The dynamic midfielder has featured in 23 league games for the Jogoo this season finding the back of the thrice against Wakiso giants, BUL FC, and Mbarara City registering four assists.
He has also scored once in the Uganda Cup; no wonder many believe he has been the fulcrum for Villa’s resurgence this season.
The former Proline FC player joined Villa in 2018 from Vipers SC and was instrumental in the Edward Kaziba’s side successful relegation survival campaign last season.
It’s not only Owori whose contract comes to an end at the climax of this season as fellow midfielders Ambrose Kirya and Amir Kakomo also fall in the same boat.
With five games to the end of the current season, Villa sit third with 46 points and hope for more positive results should the league resume following a long abrupt break due to the pandemic Covid-19.
Efforts to get a comment from SC Villa’s CEO Shawn Mubiru were futile after he declined to comment to comment in the subject.
