Uganda goalkeeper Denis Onyango has signed a four-year contract extension with South Africa’s Premier Soccer League champions Mamelodi Sundowns according to reports.

The  Sundowns goalkeeper has signed a contract which will run until the end of the 2020/21 season.

“Sundowns have also tied down goalkeeper Denis Onyango, who signed a four year contract extension,” Sundowns said on their website.

Onyango who was voted the best Africa-based Footballer of the Year by the Confederation of African Football has been outstanding for country and club.

The 29-year-old was an influential figure for Uganda Cranes in the African Cup of Nations 2017 in Gabon playing the first two matches but missed the last group game because of injury.

Onyango is the reigning ABSA Premiership Goalkeeper of the Season and his good form will help Sundowns win more trophies.

The Kampala-born keeper has been at the Pretoria-based outfit since 2011 and  is  currently ranked in the top ten goalkeepers in the world according to the International Federation of Football History and Statistics (IFFHS).
