TRANSFERS Allan Kateregga: Top African clubs fight for ex-Tusker and AFC Leopards star

Kateregga’s contract with his current club is understood to be ending in the next few days.

Former AFC Leopards and Tusker attacking midfielder Allan Kateregga has attracted interest from top clubs in Africa.

CAF Confederation Cup champions USM Alger of Algeria and former Champions League champions TP Mazembe are reportedly leading the race to sign the Ugandan.

The 29-year-old has been on the books of Ligue 1 side FC Saint-Eloi Lupopo of the Democratic Republic of Congo, but his contract is expected to end in June.

His imminent exit has forced the clubs that are interested in him to put the midfielder on their transfer wishlist.

Apart from USM Alger and TP Mazembe, South Africa’s Marumo Gallants, who were relegated to the second division despite reaching the semi-final of the Confederation Cup, as well as Tanzania’s Simba, have also reportedly shown interest.

Simba are expected to enter the market and strengthen their squad after another season that ended without a trophy.

They failed to wrestle the title from Yanga and were eliminated from the Champions League, a trophy that has been their primary target since.

Kateregga is an experienced midfielder, having played for BUL and KCCA FC in the Ugandan league and Cape Town and Maritzburg United in the Premier Soccer League.

Between 2019 and 2021, he played for Erbil SC in the Iraqi Premier League.

Despite playing in various leagues, he has not been a regular member of the Uganda Cranes team in recent years.
