Tusker FC is on course to signing three Ugandan midfielders ahead of the closure of the June 2016 Kenyan Premier League (KPL) transfer window, the team’s Ugandan coach, Paul Nkata has confirmed.

The coach, speaking after his team’s 0 – 2 loss to Gor Mahia in the KPL Top 8 Cup semi final clash on Sunday 12 June said he is in a race to bolster the midfield and revealed that talks with one of the three, Robert Omunuk are at an advanced stage.

He said nothing concrete has been reached even though the midfielder, who left Sony Sugar at the end of the first leg has been spotted in Tusker training sessions.

“We are in talks with him but nothing is signed as yet; we may be through with it maybe within a week or so,” the coach said.

Nkata who led Tusker to the summit of the KPL log in the first leg of the 2016 season, also confirmed the earlier reports that the team is in talks with Hashim Sempala of Ugandan Premier League side Bul FC as well as George Mandela, with whom he served at Muhoroni Youth last season.

“We are also in talks with Sempala and Mandela. I don’t know how far the talks have gone but we are interested in their services,” he added.
