Comical though immensely talented goalkeeper Franco Oringa has completed personal talks with Soana Football Club, Kawowo Sports reliably asserts.

The development was confirmed by the two parties on Thursday.

Soana director cum president Smart Obed revealed to Kawowo Sports that for a long time, Oringa had been his target.

The businessman who specialized in Real Estate and Vehicles confirmed;

He is an incredible goalkeeper any club would wish to sign.

We have finished the personal agreements and he is set to start training when we resume duty very soon.

The goalkeeper, who has been at Bugembe side, Sadolin Paints had first been approached last May but negotiations stalled at the 11th hour.

He is excited to join Soana, a club he had always admired.

This is a dream come true. I had always wanted to play from there (Soana). We agreed on some fee but i will not reveal it to the media as well as allowances and a salary.

Kawowo Sports has established that Oringa will pocket Ug.shs 2.5M in signing fees with salaries and allowances muted for confidential clauses.

The former Uganda Revenue Authority and BUL football club shot stopper who has been at Sadolin Paints had been linked to a move to the Tanzanian Premier League with African Lyon F.C but the foreign quota was completed before he finalized the paper work to travel.

Oringa is a gifted goalkeeper, an entertainer with great game reading skills, strong in the air and have special abilities to involve in play like an outfield player.

He joins another former Sadolin Paints goalie, Didi Muhammed and veteran Godfrey Wakabu at the club that has recently hired former Uganda Cranes players George Lutalo Bbosa from Jinja Municipal Council Hippos.

Lutalo takes over the mantle from Sam Ssimbwa, who has since left for Sofapaka in Kenya.
