Football Transfers: Ugandan striker Sadat Anaku signs for Dundee United on a two-year deal.

Dundee Unitedfc…………….Sadat has joined United from Kampala Capital City Authority FC (KCCA FC), after a work permit and international clearance.

At 21, Sadat has netted 22 goals in 67 games for his club and is on the brink of breaking into the Uganda national team.

Earlier this year, Sadat was named in a provisional 45-man Uganda international squad for a five-game tour of Europe and Asia.

He was also selected by the Ugandan Government as part of a ‘Team Fundi’ project, showcasing the talents of the country’s top 22 players in a series of games at a Spanish training camp.

Dundee United watched Sadat net four goals in one game at that camp and, following an integration period at Tannadice, he has excelled.

Deployed as a number 9, in friendlies with Leicester U21s, Arsenal U21s and Newcastle, Sadat underlined his quality. 

He also netted a hat-trick in a 6-2 Dundee United B Team win over Queen’s Park earlier this week before penning a deal with United until the summer of 2024.

Dundee United Sporting Director Tony Asghar said: “We’re delighted to have Sadat here.

“He’s coming from a country that has big ambitions and objectives and Sadat can become an integral part of that.

“Uganda want to get to the World Cup and the African Cup of Nations and Sadat is a player with real potential at international level.

 “We identified his talent at an early stage and invited him to Scotland see how he could integrate into our group. We’re delighted with the impact he has made here so far.

“The coaching and performance staff believe he is good enough to make an impact on our first team.

“Is he good enough to take the next level beyond that? Yes, that’s now down to us to develop him.

“We’ll identify his attributes and add in the bits he needs to become a top player European and help him fulfil his potential at Dundee United.”
