Uganda Cranes goalkeeper Ismail Watenga is understood to be on his way to South Africa.
According to Swift Sports, the former Vipers SC shot-stopper has completed a move to PSL giants Mamelodi Sundowns.
It is reported that Watenga signed a three-year deal to join the reigning PSL champions during the lock down and will finally travel to South Africa on Sunday, October 4, after travel restrictions were eased.
He will however first endure a loan spell to either Golden Arrows or Bidvest Wits as he is prepared for the slot in between the goal posts of Mamelodi Sundowns.
Sundowns is already home to Uganda Cranes captain Denis Onyango who is also a goalkeeper.
The reason for Watenga’s loan move is the fact that Sundowns already has three established goalkeepers with Kennedy Mwene and Ricardo Goss playing debutants to Onyango.
Watenga has for a while now, been without a club after parting ways with Kenyan side Sofapaka earlier this year.
If he indeed moves to South Africa, he will join Onyango and Super Sport’s Moses Waiswa as the three Ugandans currently featuring in the South African PSL.
