Ugandan Kitamirike signs in USA
Uganda-born Joel Kitamirike in action for Chelsea
Uganda-born Joel Kitamirike is on his way to the United States
Uganda-born Joel Kitamirike has signed for Columbus Crew in the USA's Major League Soccer.

The youngster was on the books at English Premiership side Chelsea before he moved to Dundee in the Scottish where he played last season.

His deal is still pending the approval of his work permits.

The 21-year-old was born in Uganda but moved to England at the age of four.

He was called up to the Ugandan national squad in June 2004 but did not play against the DR Congo as he refused to give up his British citizenship in order to get a Ugandan passport.

Under Ugandan immigration law it is not permitted to hold dual nationality.
