“After his good performance in the Fufa Super league, the Uganda Cup and also the national team, Savio has earned himself chance for trials and hopefully he performs well,” added Ssenyange.

The steady defender helped SC Victoria University win the Uganda Cup and also finish fifth in FUFA Super League. He made his debut for the national team in an international friendly against Rwanda this year and also played in another build-up away to Libya.

Cranes Coach Milutin ‘Micho’ Sredojevic also said the player is a great talent and should be featuring in the paid ranks.

“He is a good young player who will be an asset to Uganda,” added Micho.

Although he has been part of the Cranes team in the 2014 World Cup campaign, he is yet to feature in any of the games.

If he is successful with the trials at Bidvest Wits University, he will join other Ugandan players currently featuring in the PSL like Denis Onyango and Posnet Omony.

Former Kaizer Chief and Cranes winger David Obua is also expected in South Africa this week to join University of Pretoria for pre-season training before his signing while Cranes and Asante Kotoko left-back Joseph Ochaya is on the verge of a €600,000 to German second division side Greuther Furth where he is set to start fortnight-long trails.

The Ghanaian giants signed Ochaya for a fee worth $30,000 (sh75m) from Kampala City Council Authority (KCCA FC) last year.

“This is a good move for my career and I am set to earn it no matter what though without God and prayers from home, it won’t be easy at all,” the 19-year-old told Kotoko’s official website before leaving for Germany on Tuesday.
