Vipers Sports Club has completed the signing of former SC Villa defender Henry Katongole.
Katongole’e move had been blocked by his former side who claimed he was still contracted to them.
He is believed to have signed a two year deal that will see him at the St. Mary’s Stadium until the close of the 2019/20 season.
The defender has now been declared a free agent by the FUFA players’ status committee before Vipers confirmed him via their official website;
Following lengthy fact finding inquiries in regard to contract issues with his previous club, the committee finally ruled in the player’s favour hence declaring him a free agent due to bleached provisions within what was agreed with previous employers, read the statement.
The transfer’s financial details have not been disclosed though it’s believed the Venoms beat other rival top flight clubs to the player’s signature.
The defender comes with experience which the Venoms will be surely banking on both in the domestic competitions as well as the CAF champions’ league this season.
Katongole has previously played at Express FC where he won the 2011/12 league and SC Villa from 2015-2018.
He joins a long list of new signings as Tito Okello, Livingstone Mulondo, Abraham Ndugwa, Ibrahim Kiyemba, Dickens Okwi, among others.
