Vipers in advanced talks to sign Bul FC striker Karim Ndugwa
Thursday – StarTimes Uganda Premier League defending champions Vipers SC are closing in on the signing of Bul FC forward Karim Ndugwa.
The Premier League club, who have been talking to Ndugwa for several weeks, are reported to have reached a verbal agreement.
It is understood Bul FC were open to letting Ndugwa leave following Bul’s elimination from the CAF Confederation Cup by Egyptian side Futures.

Vipers are currently in search for striking reinforcements for a squad that only has Rwothomio Cromwell as its proven striker. The latter’s form this season is also wanting.

Vipers have been placed in Group C alongside Raja Casablanca (Morocco), Horoya SC (Guinea), Simba SC and (Tanzania).
