The Chairboys beat Oxford 2-1 in the League One play-off final at Wembley to secure promotion to the second tier of English football.

According to youthful gaffer, he played a vital role in the forward’s move to the Chairboys.

“I have been in constant contact with Mubiru,” McKinstry said before adding.

“We spoke about the prospect of moving to the Championship after he called to consult for advice and I gave him a go-ahead.”

“The Championship is one of the most if not the very best of the competitive leagues in the world, with thrilling action week in, week out.”

“It is definitely a great platform for Mubiru to develop further,” he added.

Wycombe expects a lot from Mubiru

The championship side have already declared their high hopes for the Uche Mubiru following his successful spell in Scottish football.

“Coach Gareth Ainsworth has secured Wanderers’ first new signing as a Championship club, bringing Uche Ikpeazu to Adams Park on a three-year deal.”

“The Chairboys’ new number 9 arrives from Scottish side Hearts, having earned a move to the Edinburgh club thanks to a blistering spell at Cambridge United, catching the eye in a number of appearances against the Blues.”

Uche Mubiru was among the three new players invited by McKinstry ahead of their 2021 Africa Cup of Nations qualifying fixtures against South Sudan on March 28 and 31.

The 25-year-old who was born in London to a Nigerian father and a Ugandan mother, has scored two goals in 23 Scottish Premiership games last season.
