Cape Town - Kaizer Chiefs have announced the signing of left-back Godfrey Walusimbi from Kenyan Premier League side Gor Mahia on a three-year deal.

As it happened: Kaizer Chiefs 2-2 Celtic

"I've always known that Kaizer Chiefs is a great football club," Walusimbi said. "Chiefs play for honours and that's a positive mind-set that every player dreams of.

"Just like every footballer, I always want to move one step further in my career and I think my move to Chiefs is one such step."

Walusimbi is a fully-fledged Ugandan international and will represent his country in the upcoming FIFA international break. He has played for several clubs including Sports Club Villa in Uganda and CS Don Bosco of DR Congo.

"I have already adapted at Chiefs," he added. "It's easier to adapt in a professional environment. I look forward to working hard and contribute to the team."

Football manager Bobby Motaung welcomed Walusimbi and shared his views about 'Wazza' as he is affectionately known.

"It has been an engaging process to finalise this move," Motaung said. "At the end we are happy the process has been completed, and the player is available to play. We wish him all of the best with us."

Walusimbi will don jersey number 29.
