Reports in South Africa indicates that the Ugandan and Gor Mahia striker will head straight to Kaizer Chiefs for trials after this weekend's Afcon qualifiers
A week after he failed to secure a deal with Danish side HB Koge, Gor Mahia striker Dan Sserunkuma is now scheduled to undergo trials with South African top side Kaizer Chiefs.
Soccer Laduma reports that Kaizer Chiefs are interested in services of the Ugandan hit man and he will travel to South Africa after this weekend’s African Cup of Nations qualifiers.
Sserunkuma is part of Uganda Cranes squad that takes on Mauritania on Saturday. Chiefs head coach, Stuart Baxter and his technical team have already opted against signing Togolese striker Francis Kone.
“It seems Dan Sserunkuma of Gor Mahia is coming for trials at Chiefs this weekend. He should come after Uganda play Mauritania in a Cup of Nations qualifier,” a source told Laduma.
“Bobby Williamson, the Gor Mahia coach is Scottish and a friend of Kaizer Chiefs coach Stuart Baxter. He is the one, who has recommended Dan (Sserunkuma).
“Dan was supposed to go to Europe but it seems Gor Mahia failed to release him for trials. The striker scored both Gor Mahia's goals in Nairobi derby against AFC Leopards' on Sunday," explained the source.
Sserunkuma’s move to South Africa comes barely a week after he attended trials with Danish side HB Koge but could not secure a long term contract.
