Rwanda: Rayon Sport Sign Ugandan Duo

SIX-TIME LEAGUE champions Rayon Sport have completed the signing of Uganda Cranes midfielders Mike Sserumaga and Johnson Bagoole ahead of second round of the national league this weekend.

According to the club secretary general Oliver Gakwaya, the duo has signed until the end of the current season, after which both parties will hold further talks for long term contracts.

Gakwaya told Times Sport yesterday, "We have signed both Bagoole and Sserumaga until the end of the season. After that, we will offer them long term contracts based on their performance."

Bagoole has previously played for APR during the 2010/11 and 2011/12 seasons but, in 2010, he joined DR Congo AS Vita club after playing two seasons at the defunct Atraco FC. He has been clubless after being offloaded by APR last season.

Ssserumaga will be making his second appearance at the club following his stint way back in February 2011. He is now looking for his release letter from Ethiopia's St. George before Rayon Sport can request an international transfer window before January 30 deadline.

Gakwaya also confirmed that the club has completed the international transfer certificate request from Fifa for the Burundian import Cedric Amissi, who has spent the first leg without kicking a ball due to transfer complications.

Rayon, third on the Primus league standings with 25 points, are bidding to win their first league title in seven years.

They begin the second round away to Amagaju on Sunday.
