Fifa intermediary Ronald Santos has rebuffed media reports that his client Erisa Ssekisambu has double signed.
The 23-year-old forward recently moved to Kenyan Premier League heavyweights Gor Mahia on a two-year-contract and his name was among those forwarded to Caf for Champions League football next season.
But on Sunday, reports emerged that the former Vipers SC player had also signed for Indian topflight side Real Kashmir Football Club in a fraudulent deal.
Santos has since refuted the claims saying that his client was duly signed by K’Ogalo with all procedures followed and backed up by the necessary paperwork.
He further disclosed that the purported India move was done behind his back as the official agent of the player and that he managed to block it.
“I wish to inform you that I am the official agent of Erisa Ssekisambu and I officially agreed with Gor Mahia and my player; we signed a two-year-agreement.
“I wish to inform you that before the Gor Mahia offer, the player had another offer from India and he signed a pre-contract but this was done behind my back and I blocked it upon realization.
“The agent behind the deal Rajesh claims that some money had exchanged hands which is a lie. Erissa is officially Gor’s player because his ITC transfer request was approved and we are proud of Gor Mahia,” Santos.
The player is still in Uganda but is expected in the country after Gor’s international friendly against Everton at Goodison Park Tuesday.
