StarTimes Uganda Premier League debutants NEC FC are close to acquiring the services of Onduparaka FC left-back Rashid Okocha.
The Onduparaka faithful has reportedly left West Nile for Kampala City, where he is having his training sessions with NEC FC.
A source intimated to Pulse Uganda Sports that his former coach, Dudu Bosco, now assistant to Hussein Mbalangu, has been vital in luring him to the Bugolobi-based football club ahead of the 2023/24 season.

Ssebagala’s contract with Express FC expired at the end of last season, opening a window for any other club interested in his services.
NEC are reportedly offering Okocha a two-year deal.
Okocha is reportedly running out of contract at Onduparaka FC and will be a free agent before the 2023/24 season.
Okocha has been faithful to the Caterpillars, having spent the last four seasons at the club.
A mainstay in the squad since 2019, he featured 24 times last season as they suffered relegation.
