Mutyaba completes Mazembe move

Ugandan midfielder Mike Mutyaba will play his football for the next half decade with TP Mazembe after sealing a move to the DRC side at the weekend.

That also means Caf Champions League football for the 22-year-old, who could not hide his elation on his Facebook page after cementing the switch.

“Finally secured 5yrs contract with TP. Mazembe,” he wrote, “Great thanks to the almighty Allah.”

The former Vipers and El Merrick winger joins compatriot Patrick Ochan at the former African champions.

Mutyaba, who has been on loan from Merrick to Vipers, has recovered from a serious injury sustained last season.

Neither party could confirm the money paid to the Sudanese side for Mutyaba’s signature but sources put it at $50,000.

According to Vipers in Uganda, the player is already with his new club ready for action. Mutyaba will hope for playing time so as to force his way back into the national team as he’s been out lately.

Meanwhile, Cranes left back Godfrey Walusimbi is also in DR Congo for trials with Don Bosco FC. The TP Mazembe second side will feature in the Caf Confederation Cup this year.
