Mamelodi Sundowns have emerged as surprise suitors of Uganda Cranes left footed winger Allan “Dancing Rasta” Kateregga.
According to South African publication Soccer Laduma, the dreadlocked winger is a target for Mamelodi Sundowns as well as Tanzanian champions Simba SC.
Sundowns are understood to have expressed interest in signing Kateregga who has been without a club since last year in October after he left Iraqi club Erbil SC.
When contacted for a comment, Samuel Celubra, Kateregga’s agent could neither deny nor confirm the growing interest for his client,
“You know it’s that time of the season, where rumours come in and out. Its not bad because he’s a good player, and he’s recovered, he’s ready to play,”
Celubra told Soccer Laduma.
“Some of these rumours may be true, some may not – but I will have more information in the coming days,” He added
Kateregga has recently been training with second tier side Jomo Cosmos (home to fellow Ugandan, Daniel Isiagi) while pondering on his next move.
Earlier on during the recently concluded season, Tshakhuma Tsha Madzivhandila (TTM FC), another South African club, openly expressed interest in signing Kateregga but no compromise was reached.
If Kateregga signs for either Sundowns or Simba, he will be teammates with his fellow countrymen Denis Onyango or Taddeo Lwanga.
The Dancing Rasta has previously featured for Tusker and AFC Leopards in Kenya, the now defunct SC Victoria University and KCCA.
He played for PSL side Cape Town City who loaned him to Maritzburg United in the 2018-19 season. At the end of the campaign, Kateregga and Cape Town agreed to terminate his contract with two years left.
Kateregga has played for the Cranes on eight occasions and was part of the team that represented Uganda in the 2019 AFCON tournament in Egypt.
