Reigning Uganda Premier League champions Vipers SC have completed the signing of Burundi goalkeeper Fabien Mutombora.
The Keeper who was reported as having agreed terms with Express FC last week is believed to have inked a three year deal at the Kitende based side.
Mutombore has been training at Express FC for weeks and also featured in their 1-1 draw with Azam FC in a friendly.
The signing was confirmed by Vipers through a statement on the club’s website:
“Vipers SC is pleased to announce the signing of Fabien Mutombora from Lydia Ludic Académic FC of Burundi,” read a statement on the club website.
“The Burundi International goal keeper has put pen to paper on a deal to keep him at Vipers for 3 years until 2021.
It’s believed that Vipers spotted the custodian while with the Red Eagles and immediately made a move which tempted him to move to Kitende at the expense of Wankulukuku.
Mutombora previously featured for Burundi giants LLD Academy and was part of their team in the CECAFA Kagame Cup in July this year in Dar es Salaam.
Mutombora was in goal for the Venoms in the 1-0 defeat at the hands of Mbarara City in a friendly game at Kakyeeka on Wednesday.
His capture sends a signal that the club is poised to lose first choice goalkeeper Ismail Watenga who is yet to renew his contract at the club.
He joins young-star Bashir Ssekagya and and James Alitho who are already at the club as goalkeepers.
