“Long-term deal agreed to be formally sealed in next 48h. City keep going for best talents as their Academy remains a crucial part of the club’s project,” he added.

Who is Divine Mukasa?

Divine Mukasa, an English by birth, was born to Laima Mukasa, an English native and a Ugandan father Sam Mukasa.

His mother, Laima Mukasa, is a Lead Midwife at Barts Health Medical Centre in England, and a staunch and ardent follower of West Ham United.

Divine Mukasa has featured for the various Underage football levels for Westham for the past ten years and has also been through the ranks of the England national set-up, including the U15s, U16s and currently the U17s.

His father being Ugandan, Mukasa is eligible to feature for the Pearl of Africa, as he is yet to play for England’s senior team.

Westham Zone describes the 16-year-old as: “possesses exceptional technique and has a great engine on him for someone so young,”

“Mukasa has all of the raw ingredients needed to go on and become a real star in the game.”

While he currently plays for England, Ugandans at home will be eager to see if Mukasa could switch allegiances in the future.
