Former Express striker Paddy Tebusweke has signed for Zambian side Mufulira Wanderers for a reported $18,000/- (sh64m), in a two year deal.

The 27-year-old who left Express FC, mid-season for free was signed after impressing in two trial games with the side, in which he scored combined five goals.

The Wanderers who are Zambia’s most successful club are currently battling relegation and hope to improve with the Ugandan striker who is going to earn close to sh1.5m per month.

The deal was brokered by his agent Ronnie Santos and he has since promised to put up his best to lift the club.

“My agent took me to the club recently for trials and I impressed both the new coach and the fans. They’re offering me a well-furnished house and will look after me very well, but they are going to pay me in installments,” Tebusweke said.

“The club has been recruiting new players because they were struggling but I feel fit and ready for the job, I expect to perform well because I have been training and believe in myself,”

“I also feel at home because of the trust and warm reception I have received here and I will hopefully make my debut on Wednesday next week against Zesco,” Tebusweke stated.

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 one of them.

He also 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.

 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
