As the January transfer window nears the end, StarTimes Uganda Premier League teams are busy making changes in their squads in order to improve their performances in the second stanza of the season.
Express FC is using the opportunity to acquire the signature of Frank ‘Zaga’ Tumwesigye on loan from the reigning league champions Vipers SC.
While talking to www.football256.com, Express FC head coach Kefa Kisala confirmed that his side is working tirelessly to land the talented midfielder at the Betway Mutesa II Stadium, Wankulukuku.
Kisala believes that Zaga will lift Express FC due to his ball distribution, mobility and dribbling skills are exceptional and would hurt any opponent without a doubt.
“He is a talented and young player every manager can admire. He can set up team’s rhythm, create chances as well as scoring,” Kisala said before adding. “I expect a lot from him and I believe he will lift our team and improve its general performance.”
But the former Cranes international couldn’t confirm whether Zaga was officially an Express player much as he confirmed they were in talks in Vipers.
“We are still in talks with Vipers, signing different documents so that they give us the player on loan. When all that is done, he will be unveiled to the public before Saturday,” Kisala noted.
The development comes after Vipers revealed in their official website that the midfielder joins Express on loan until the end of the 2018/19 season.
He is expected to have more playing time at Express, develop his talent and career as well as revive his form and if he impresses will return next season.
Despite his brilliancy and comfort on the ball, the youthful player has failed to be main stay in their Vipers’ side.
He has closely kept in the shadows of fellow midfielders like Moses Waiswa, Tom Masiko, Brian Nkuubi, Rahmat Ssenfuka, Duncan Sseninde and Abraham Ndugwa.
Express kick start the second stanza of the 2018/2019 StarTimes Uganda Premier League with a visit to Buhinga to play Tooro United, they are also into the round of 16 of the Stanbic Uganda Cup.
The Venoms also through their technical director Eddie Butindo have announced the release of Burundian Ndizeye Sefu, Dickens Okwir, Fred Okot, Davis Kasirye and Noah Wafula much as their claims to be trying to secure loan deals for them.
