Wagaluka deal backfires

Western Stima’s hopes of signing Ugandan international Dan Wagaluka hit the roof after the player declined to put pen to paper instead going back to his native country.

Wagaluka had been touted as the top signing for Stima and several media houses had reported of his signing but the same did not materialise as he is said to have gone back to Uganda and all efforts to reach him by Stima officials have been fruitless.

Stima chairman Laban Jobita confirmed to supersport.com that they had failed to sign the player as his demands exceeded their offer.

"We did not sign Wagaluka as we failed to agree. He went back to Uganda and has never communicated again but I believe we did not come to an agreement since what he wanted was beyond our reach as a club. He is a superbly talented player but at times you get some and miss some," Jobita told supersport.com.

Stima will be involved in this weekend's charity cup before embarking on their league campaign next month under the watchful eyes of Francis Baraza who was appointed to take over from sacked Henry Omino.
