KAMPALA – Police FC are understood to be in negotiations over signing Vipers’ defender Henry Katongole.
Sources close to the two clubs confirm that they are in talks over a potential loan deal that will see Katongole join the Lugogo based side until the end of the current season.
Katongole has not featured for the Venoms since moving from SC Villa in the summer.
Despite signing a two year deal at Kitende, the defender clashed with former Venoms’ tactician Javier Martinez, who froze him (Katongole) out of the picture.
After Martinez’s departure, Katongole was recalled to the first team and has been training but with Livingstone Mulondo, Geoffrey Wasswa, Bashir Asiku, Ibrahim Kiyemba and Halid Lwaliwa all fit, it will be difficult for Katongole to get get the desired playing time hence a move to Police looking most likely.
Police have been dreadful at the back, conceding a League high, 26 goals so far including 5 in a single game away to KCCA FC.
With his experience, Katongole would indeed be the short time solution for the Cops’ woes.
