Forward Alex Kitatta “Benzema” is on the verge of returning to Uganda People’s Defence Forces Football Club (UPDF FC).

Kitatta is currently employed with Rwanda Premier league side Kiyovu Football club whom he joined from UPDF FC on a two year deal in January this year.

Swift Sports understands that, Kitatta has already held negotiations with UPDF FC over a possible return. He is set to put pen to paper on a one year employment contract with the army side.

Kitatta is a skillful, quick, agile and prolific forward, who is strong and powerful and a potent finisher from inside the box. He can be deployed as a centre forward and can also operate as an out and out striker.
