Dundee United Head Coach Jack Ross is confident new signing and StarTimes Uganda Premier League (SUPL) product Sadat Anaku has what it takes to succeed at the Scottish club.

The now ex-KCCA young striker, alongside former Express captain Enoch Walusimbi, sealed their deals in Scotland last weekend.

Anaku, the 21-year-old Ugandan striker, penned a two-year deal and walks straight into Dundee first team while Walusimbi has been sent on loan at third tier side Peterhead.

“I’ve been really impressed with Sadat since he came in,” coach Ross told Dundee United website.

“You have to have a certain mental toughness to come in from overseas and settle.

“Sadat has done that by leaving a really good impression on the players and staff at United.”

Anaku netted 22 goals in 67 games for KCCA and is on the brink of breaking into the Uganda national team.

The youngster was scouted by Dundee during the ‘Team Fundi’ Ugandan Government and Festoweb project camp in Spain.
