Kenya Premier League bigwigs AFC Leopards have reportedly set their eyes on sensational Uganda Revenue Authority (URA) holding midfielder Siraje Ssentamu.

The midfielder joined the tax collectors in June 2017 after the expiry of his contract with Vipers.

Before shifting base to URA, Sentamu helped the Vipers win the Uganda Cup trophy and the Azam Uganda Premier League title.

His exit from Vipers followed the signing of then SC Villa captain Taddeo Lwanga.

Ssentamu’s contract with the URA expired at the end of the 2018/19 and no formal engagement has been made about his contract extension at the club.

Uganda premier league sides Tooro United, Sports Club Villa and Express are among a number of clubs that have approached the player’s representative about his availability.

“Siraje Ssentamu’s employment contract expired at the end of the previous season. We are giving first priority to the current employers because of my client’s loyalty at the club. However, AFC Leopards asked about his (Ssentamu) availability. Here in Uganda, clubs as Express, SC Villa and Tooro United seem to be interested. We Shall go with the highest bidder,” says Ssentamu’s representatives.

Ssentamu has been a major player at URA and helped the club finish third last season.

His great tackling skills, timely blocks and easy distribution of balls at all ranges; both diagonal passes and short crispy will really be a big boost for struggling AFC Leopards.
