'I'm ready to join Mamelodi Sundowns'


Uganda international striker Fahad Bayo has issued a come and get me plea to Mamelodi Sundowns as he's 'ready' for the next step in his promising career.

Bayo, 22, has been linked with a move to the Absa Premiership giants after Vipers SC rebuffed the advances of 20-time Botola champions Wydad Casablanca.

After scoring 19 goals for club and country over the past 12 months, the physically imposing striker admits he's aware of Sundowns' interest and is ready for a new challenge.

"As it is, Mamelodi Sundowns are interested in me and they have contacted me before," Bayo tells KickOff.com.

"I'm ready for a move and my team is ready to release me. I'm ready for Mamelodi [Sundowns] as it's the best offer for me. If they are ready to sign me, I'm ready to join."

What Bayo would bring to Chloorkop

After scoring on his Cranes debut in the 2021 Africa Cup of Nations qualifiers against Malawi in November, Fahad netted twice in the CECAFA senior challenge and the recent CHAN qualifiers.

As he looks to stake his claim as the nation's leading number nine, African football expert Usher Komugisha suggests that his style of play is suitable for the physical demands of South African football.

"Bayo is a big, strong guy that uses his height in and around the box," Komugisha explains. "He is good in the air and has an eye for goal and I think his athleticism would come in handy in the PSL."
