Former Pyramids FC player Abdul Lumala has dismissed speculations of joining StarTimes Uganda Premier League record-holders SC Villa, making it clear he is still a free agent.
Last week, the 24-year-old, on his social media handles, sparked off reports of a done deal to Villa after he posted the club’s Crest.
This was on top of the reports that had before that, circulated of a possible transfer to the Jogoo, but as things stand, he seems to have ended the talk with his latest post.
“I don’t know where the news is coming from,” said the former Pyramids FC player on Monday morning, before adding.
“I haven’t signed for any football club (just to clear the air), I am a free agent. I will be letting you know my next club,” his post summed.
Lumala is not new to social media controversy for instance in 2021, he used it to announce national team retirement after a burst-up with Uganda Cranes head coach, Milutin ‘Micho’ Sredojevic.
The St. Mary’s Secondary School Kitende graduate has not played club football since 2019 after sustaining a career-ending injury at Pyramids.
However, despite getting over it about two years back, he did not feature with the Egyptian outfit until his contract expired.
Lumala has previously played at Swedish sides Kalmer FF, Helsinborgs IF, IFK Vernamo, Syrianska FC before making the move to Pyramids – after his exploits with the Uganda Cranes at the 2019 AFCON in Egypt.
With the Cranes, the lightning-quick winger played six times before hanging his boots in 2021.
