Vipers SC are on the verge of losing first choice goalkeeper Fabien Mutombora.
Mutombora joined Vipers in 2018 from Burundian outfit LLD Academy.
It is understood that the Burundi number one signed a two year deal with the Venoms, one that expires at the end of the 2019/20 season.
According to Swift Sports, Tanzanian giants Azam FC are hot on the heals of Mutombora and are already understood to have held talks with him.
It is also understood that the Kitende based side have also talked to their first choice goalkeeper but he has been hesitant to renew his contract.
In the two years he has been at Vipers, Mutombora has been arguably the best goalkeeper in the Uganda Premier League and it would be a big loss for the Venoms who are on the verge of winning this year’s league title as they hold a four-point lead atop the standings with just five games to play.
If he indeed leaves, Fred Kajoba’s side will remain with youngsters Bashir Sekagya and Derrick Ochan who have been Mutombora’s understudies for the past couple of seasons.
Sekagya is the more experienced of the two as he has previously featured for UPDF FC in the UPL on top of two loan spells, with the latest at Proline FC, this season.
After the capture of Nicholas Wadada in 2018, Mutombora would become the second player to join Azam FC from Vipers, in two years.
