Homeboyz head coach Ugandan Paul Nkata is keen to bolster his side in order to register better results in the second leg.

Club chairman Cleophas Shimanyula said that they opted for Bageya as he brings to the team speed and goal poaching skills. Bageya will be relied upon to feed lethal striker Allan Wanga.

“We want goals and so I have to make sure we sign players like him who will add the fighting spirit in the squad,”Shimanyula said.

The club is planning to bring in five new players before the transfer window close at the end of the month.

Homeboyz has already signed former Tusker FC defender George Mandela and Benjamin Oketch from Chemelil Sugar to strengthen their defensive department.
