RAYON Sports captain Eric Rutanga has reached advanced talks with Tanzania side Young Africans for a possible move in January, Times Sport understands.
If both clubs agree to the transfer terms, the left-back could join his former APR teammate, Patrick Sibomana, at the Dar es Salaam-based side in January 2020.
Speaking to Times Sport on Tuesday, Rutanga said that he still has two years of contract with the Blues and he is happy at the club, but he also would not turn down the opportunity to play for ‘regional giants’ Young Africans should the two teams agree to the deal.
“I am happy here. And, I still have a contract to honour,” he said. “But I will also be happy to join them (Young Africans) if both sides agree to the deal. It would be a good challenge and opportunity for growth for me as a footballer.”
Rutanga, 27, is one of the most sought after defenders in local football since his 2016 move to Rayon from archrivals APR.
