Former Uganda U-23, URA and BUL football club midfielder, Hashim Sempala is on the verge of joining a Brazilian side, Bangu Atletico Clube.
The Ugandan, who has of late turned for the reigning Kenya Premier League champions Tusker FC traveled for trials with the side.
In fact, Sempala, a deep lying midfielder with quick reaction and great vision has already played for the Brazilian club at an invitational tournament in Vietnam.
His positional discipline and ball passing skills has instead won him admirers in Vietnam.
Tusker technical director Charles Obiny, as quoted by Star.co.ke confirmed they released the Ugandan for the trials after the South American side officially asked for his services through a letter.
Obiny showered praise onto the Ugandan and indicated they are willing to release him without any hassle;
We released Hashim Sempala to conduct trials with Bangu Atletico Clube and so far there is nothing conclusive but we have heard that he is doing well.
Hashim is a leader a fighter and a role model who gives one hundred percent on the pitch, we will miss him if the deal comes through because we cannot stand in his way
Meanwhile, Tusker has continued to lobby for Ibrahim Saddam Juma, another Ugandan offensive midfielder now at Express Football Club.
Tuker head coach, Paul Nkata is a self confessed admirer of Saddam for his ball retention abilities.
Nkata is currently among the coaches attending the second edition of a coaching clinic being conducted by coaches from English Premier League side Arsenal at the Kenya School of Monetary Studies.
