Taddeo Lwanga who joined the club earlier this month is likely to feature for the side when they take on KMC FC on Wednesday.
“This is because the mini-transfer window is open since December 15,” Simba SC confirmed in a statement.
“Thus Simba will have the opportunity to use Lwanga in the match and the forthcoming Caf Champions League match against FC Platinum of Zimbabwe.”
“Lwanga is a free player, after completing his contract with Egyptian Premier League club, Tanta SC.”
“He has been signed to replace Gerson Fraga who recently underwent knee surgery due to an injury he picked earlier this season.”
“Fraga will be out of action for more than six months so he was allowed to return to Brazil to oversee his treatment,” it further said.
Taddeo Lwanga signed for Simba on December 2 for an undisclosed fee after leaving Egyptian club Tanta SC.
However, he was yet to make a start for the team as the transfer window was still closed.
