The newly-promoted Mukono based side is in advanced talks the striker who also played for Uganda Cranes during the CHAN 2018 tournament hosted by Morocco.

“I had issues with Maroons Football Club and I requested to be let go,” Batte disclosed.

“They (Kyetume FC) have made a down payment of Shs 3M as I look forward the rest of the balance (not disclosed) before I sign the contract. We have not even talked about the salary and other match allowances,” Batte added.

Kyetume gained their slot via a promotional playoff, humbling Kansai Plascon 4-1 at the StarTimes Stadium, Lugogo.

Their technical team was also boosted by the recruitment of George Nsimbe and David Katono Mutono.

The duo replaced Jackson Mayanja and Allan Kabonge.
