Transfer digest: Yunus Sentamu, Hassan Wasswa on the move

Yunus Sentamu is set to play in the domestic league again.

KCCA have so far released Sadam Juma and Jackson Nunda among other players.

It is that time of the year when football clubs spend big on strengthening their squads in the player transfer market. Vision Sport will bring you daily updates on who is on the move.

Ssentamu close to rejoining Vipers

Striker Yunus Sentamu is on the verge of re-joining Vipers SC.

Sentamu made his name following his stellar performances at the 2014 African Nations Championship in South Africa.

The then 19-year-old Vipers striker finished as the joint 1st runner-up in the scoring charts with three goals, one behind South Africa's Bernard Parker.

The former AS Vita club and Sfaxien player who is expected to sign a two-year deal has not had a club since the start of last year after KF Tirana didn't renew his two-year contract.

Sentamu was expected to join Vipers in August last year but both parties failed to agree on a deal amid reports that he was asking for sh15m as monthly pay which Vipers were not ready to do.

Vipers have already signed Ibrahim Orit (Mbarara City), Disan Galiwango (Express), and Jamil Kalisa (Bright Stars FC).

KCCA makes moves

KCCA who have so far recruited five new players such as Bright Anukani, Ashraf Mugume, Charles Lwanga, Italian-born Stephen Mazengo Loro, utility player Denis Iguma have reportedly signed Pius Obuya from Maroons on a three-year deal.

Striker Brian Aheebwa who scored eight goals for Mbarara City last season is another player KCCA is interested in.

Reports reveal how KCCA was willing to offer the forward sh10m as a sign-on fee although the player and his representatives want more which the club may not offer hence the possibility for Aheebwa joining Vipers.

KCCA has so far released Sadam Juma and Jackson Nunda among other players.

URA eyes four signings

URA who signed 10 players during the same transfer window last-the most of any team- are likely to recruit not more than four new players.

In fact, there are interested in bringing on board goalkeeper Tom Ikara from KCCA, Jackson Nunda who was released by KCCA, David Owori (SC Villa) and Arafat Galiwango from Police.

Galiwango and Ikara are likely to be the replacements for Yeseri Waibi and James Alitho who left the club.

Hassan Wasswa could end up on URA's books for next season.

Cranes midfielder Hassan Wasswa is thought to be considering a stint back home after his spell in India seems to have come to an end. The former SC Villa, KCCA and Vipers player has previously shown interest of playing for KCCA again but with the 13-time league champions having acquired Dennis Iguma, it may not be possible.

Madondo Ghana-bound?

Striker Joel Madondo who was recently released by Morocco's Wydad Casablanca is considering a move to Ghana rather than returning home.

Mbarara signs Edwok

Mbarara City which has so far lost two of its key players Ibrahim Orit (Vipers) and Brian Aheebwa (KCCA) have signed midfielder Ronald Edwok and winger Godfrey Kalungi from FUFA Big League side Light SSS. Farouk Samali has also returned after a loan spell with Kigezi Home Boyz Football Club.

Kyetume eyes free agents

Kyetume FC is also in talks to sign free agents Bernard Muwanga (defender) and Nicholas Kasozi (midfielder) both from KCCA.

Police eyes Kasozi

Police which has so far beefed up its roster with Cranes midfielder Tony Mawejje, defenders Eric Ssenjobe (KCCA) and Hassan Muhamood from Onduparaka, are also interested in signing free agent Nicholas Kasozi.
