Kaizer Chiefs will no longer have a chance to sign Dan Sserunkuma in this transfer window, after the player decided to sign a contract with Ulisses FC in Armenia.
The Ugandan has been a transfer target for Chiefs for some time, since the days of Stuart Baxter as the coach of the reigning Absa Premiership champions.
The Siya crew reported earlier today that Chiefs are no longer interested in signing the striker, under their current technical team led by Steve Komphela.
The Amakhosi are expected to begin the 2015/16 season with the strikers in their current squad, including new signings Bongani Ndulula and Camaldine Abraw.
“Dan has signed a two-year contract with Ulisses FC in Armenia. Thanks for all the support,” a source close to Sserunkuma told the Siya crew.
David Zulu and Bernard Parker are set to lead Chiefs in their attack in the Soweto Derby against Orlando Pirates when the two teams play in the Carling Black Label Cup on Saturday.
Daniel Muzeyi “Dan” Sserunkuma (born 14 December 1993 in Kampala) is a Ugandan footballer who plays as a striker for Tanzanian Premier League side Simba and the Uganda national football team. He is represented by British-born FIFA players’ agent Ken Joseph.
Sserunkuma started playing professional football at Ugandan team Express F.C. in 2008.
After one year in Express F.C., he moved to rival club Victors FC, where he stayed for the next two years.
Nairobi City Stars
In 2011, Sserunkuma moved to Kenya to join Premier League team Nairobi City Stars.
After playing for a year and half for Nairobi City Stars, Sserunkuma then moved to Gor Mahia F.C. in 2012.
In 2013, Sserunkuma played an important role in helping Gor Mahia F.C. clinch the Kenyan Premier League title for the first time since 18 years. He ended the 2012 season with 17 goals and several assists and was named the 2012 KPL player of the year.
In November 2013, Sserunkuma caused a stir in the club by officially handing in a transfer request, expressing his desire to join Armenian Premier League club FC Banants. However, the player was not allowed to leave the club.
In 2014, he was the highest goal scorer in the 2014 Kenyan Premier League season with total of 16 goals scored.
In December 2014, Sserunkuma completed a free transfer move to Tanzanian giants Simba S.C.
In February 2013, Sserunkuma received his first national team call up for the Ugandan Cranes. During his debut match against Rwanda, he scored one goal from the penalty spot while setting up the other.
