Asante Kotoko SC has finalised the signing of Uganda international striker Stephen Dese Mukwala for the upcoming season, according to GHANAsoccernet.com.
For the previous two seasons, the former Uganda Premier League top scorer has been a priority target for the Porcupine Warriors, and he has finally signed for the Ghanaian giants.
Kotoko has returned to the negotiating table with the goal-scoring machine in pursuit of a quality striker to replace Cameroonian forward Franck Mbella Etouga, who is scheduled to leave the club before the start of the 2022-23 season.
Mbella Etouga was a standout for the Fabulous team in the Ghana Premier League last season, scoring 21 goals in 30 matches to help them win the title for the first time in eight years.
Mbella Etouga is scheduled to join Udinese Calcio of the Italian Serie A in the coming days.
Mukwala, who played for Uganda Revenue Authority SC last season, will join Kotoko on a two-year contract with a one-year extension option.
