Tusker left back Shafik Batambuze has agreed terms to join newly promoted Tanzanian side Singida United in June when the transfer window opens.

Batambuze, who was instrumental in inspiring the brewers to their 11th league title, scored the lone goal that downed AFC Leopards with one game to go and also guided them to clinch the GOtv Shield.

Sources close to supersport.com have confirmed the agreement between the two clubs and move that will be initiated next month but Batambuze will have to wait for August when the Vodacom Premier League gets underway.

Arguably the best left back in Kenya, he will be looking to replicate this form at his new club as he hopes to shade off the disappoint of Tusker’s start to their title defense.

Batambuze will find solace at Singida who have hired former Yanga and Medeama coach Hans van Pluijm to take over the reigns at the newcomers who will be looking to not only survive relegation but challenge for silverware.

The Dutch tactician has already signed Rwandan striker Danny Usengimana as well as the Zambian trio of Elisha Muroiwa, Wisdom Mutasa and Tafadzwa Kutinyuahead of the new season.

Having led Yanga to the double in the 2015/2016 season winning the league title as well as the Federation Cup trophy, Van Pluijm has been hired as the man to oversee the ambitious outfit from central Tanzania looking to breakup the dominance of Yanga and Simba.
