2015 CECAFA Kagame Cup champions Azam FC have begun their quest to head back to the fore of East African football. Reports indicate that league-winning skipper with Vipers Sports Club Nicholas Wadada has landed at the Chamazi Complex for a one year renewable deal.
Azam FC team manager confirmed the capture to leading Ugandan Sports website Kawowo, '' We have signed him on a one year deal,'' he says during his brief spell in the country that saw his side net the four time champion with Vipers.
Wadada, also part of Moses Basena's 2017 CECAFA squad that fell 2-1 at the semi-final level to Zanzibar, has been victorious four times with the 2017/18 Ugandan champions as a captain. To add on to the two league titles ( 2014/15, 2017/18) Wadada also won the FUFA Super Cup in 2015 and the Uganda Cup in 2016.
Lweza man Ibrahim Kiyemba has however already arrived at the St Mary's Stadium as the skipper's replacement but more exits are expected at the club especially with transfer window still open.
Danny Sserunkuma finished bagged the golden boot with 14 goals for the side, three ahead of winger Milton Karisa who has been rumoured to be on the radar of a two top Kenyan Premier League sides.
Karisa, spotted during the CECAFA championships in December, had indicated his willingness to join Tusker FC should the 2016 Kenyan champions push the deal but a new force has since entered fray. Sources at Gor Mahia reveal that the side is in dire need of a forward given the number of competitions they currently participate in and Karisa's name has been part of the deliberations.
Tusker on the other hand have only made two signings so far but it is clear as day that they will add more given the number they released when the window opened.
If this goes through, the Kenyan champions will have to do away with one foreign player to accommodate the 21 year Kenyan-born Ugandan.
