- Kenyan Premier League (KPL) side AFC Leopards have been heavily linked with former SC Villa and Ugandan defender Bernard Muwanga as the club looks to beef up their squad ahead of next season.
Earlier on, AFC Leopards chairman Dan Shikanda had revealed the club would only sign a few players who are experienced and will come to complement their fairly young squad.
Ingwe has outlined a transfer update as reported claim interest on Muwanga, whose contract with Kampala Capital City Authority (KCCA FC) ended.
However, according to a senior Ingwe official, no player has been approached for a possible move yet.
“We are deeply assessing who to bring on board but we have not reached an agreement on who should be approached for a possible move,” Ingwe top official said.
Reports claim that the 26-year-old defender has also been linked with the Tanzania side Mtibwa Sugar and has attracted interest from reining Ugandan Premier League (UPL) champions Vipers FC.
If reports are anything to go by and the deal is struck, Muwanga will be the second Ugandan at the club currently after Benjamin Ochan.
Meanwhile, in Uganda, midfielder Ivan Ssebuguzi of Wakiso Giants hopes to win the UPL title under Coach Douglas Bamweyana.
“I expect to do a lot for the club in winning titles be it the league title or Uganda Cup under the influence of the new head coach,” Ssebuguzi said.
“So, we can also represent the nation on the continent and also grow my career as a player.
“First of all, I want to thank the management of the Purple Sharks for the opportunity granted to me playing in the top-flight even though I didn’t reach my targets as a player last season.
“I have learned a lot from the experienced players with me at the club and that’s my best career moment playing in the UPL with a club of status like Wakiso Giants,” he explained.
As the transfer window remains open, several deals and rumors will continue to flow as everything in business is possible thus we might see Ingwe back in the market despite Shikanda statement.
