Express FC has signed former Kampala Kids League striker Paddy Tebusweke on a free transfer from Chinese side Wolf FC.

The 26 year old, who is fresh from playing in China and Hong Kong, was unveiled after participating in the team's morning training session on Tuesday at Wankulukuku; before former Express striker Hassan Mubiru who is now assistant coach handed him the number 7 jersey.

Tebusweke was part of the KKL sides that won the Gothia, Tivoli and Harleem cups in 2002-2003, in Sweden, Denmark and Holland and scored 25, 22 and 18 goals in the three tournaments respectively, alongside Dan Sserunkuuma, who was top scorer in each of them.

He has featured for Wolf FC (China) and Rangers FC (Hong Kong) since 2012 and he also played for Qianqi FC with whom he won the Gwadong International Football Association (GIFA) tournament in 2014, top scoring with 18 goals before an arm injury early this year forced him out for some time.

He wants to impress national team selectors, play for the Cranes and re-launch his professional career thereafter.

"I'm back after four years in China because I want to play for the national team. There is no way they could see me while I was in China, so I hope to impress, then maybe later, land even better professional deals," Tebusweke said.

"It was easy to come to Express because I grew up and trained here before, so I'm returning home and can leave anytime I want because there are no strings attached," Tebusweke who also part of the Old Kampala SS team that won the Coca Cola National Post Primary School Championships in 2002 and 2005 said.

He joins former Simba FC (Tanzania) striker Simon Sserunkuma, Bob Kasozi and Noah Ssemakula both returning from URA FC.

"Fans should come back and watch their team because we are ready to lift Express back to its former glory," Tebusweke affirmed.

In earlier days Tebusweke was part of the Old Kampala SS team that had the likes of Sulaiman Jjingo, Simon Kyeyune, Dan Sserunkuma, Mike Azira and Musa Mawanda among others and also played for the Lugave clan form 2009-2011.
