Uganda Cranes left-back defender Godfrey Walusimbi returned home to Uganda after his short stint at Kaizer Chiefs, but could return to South Africa next season.

Walusimbi was released after termination of his contract by the Amakhosi in January after spending less than six months in the Premier Soccer League on his one-and-a-half year contract.

According to a source close to Walusimbi, the player could return to South Africa next season with one PSL team having shown interest.

“He is back in the country [Uganda] and club-less at the moment,” the source told South Africa’s KickOff.com.

“There was interest from Black Leopards before he returned home but the club promised to consider signing him for next season.”

Black Leopards is coached by Dylan Kerr, who managed Walusimbi during his time at Gor Mahia.

Despite being unattached, Uganda national team coach Sebastien Desabre named the former Gor Mahia defender in the provisional squad ahead of the Africa Cup of Nations qualifier against Tanzania on 24th March.

The 29-year-old featured for SC Villa Jogoo and Kenyan giants Gor Mahia before moving to Kaizer Chiefs.
