Uganda Cranes and former Vipers goalkeeper Ismail Watenga will officially depart Uganda for South Africa on Sunday October 4th ahead of an imminent loan deal in South Africa.
Swift Sports has established that Watenga who has been in the country during the lockdown period, already signed a three year deal Mamelodi Sundowns.
Watenga is destined for a loan move to either Lamontville Golden Arrows or Bidvest Wits (Tshakhuma Tsha Madzivhandila FC), Swift Sports has learnt.
The Sundowns goalkeeping department already has Watenga’s compatriot Denis Onyango, Kennedy Mwene and newly acquired Ricardo Goss from Bidvest Wits.
Jody February, Reyaad Pieterse and Abram Ngcobo (from the development team) are other goalkeepers on the Sundowns books.
Watenga has been without a club since the turn of the year when he mutually parted ways with Kenya’s Sofapaka FC.
He is set to become the third Ugandan player in the South African top-flight league after Onyango and Supersport United’s Moses Waiswa.
