Rwanda: Austrian football club recruit Rwandan defender Emery Bayisenge

Kigali, Rwanda (PANA) - Austrian second division club, Lask Linz FC, have signed Rwandan defender Emery Bayisenge on a one-year deal, sports source said on Monday in Kigali.

The 21-year-old defender, who has also played as the captain of Rwanda's U-20 and U-23 nationals teams, is described as an "excellent prospect" by the management of his former club, Rwanda Patriotic Army Football Club (APR FC).

The right-footed defender made several appearances for the Rwandan national team, Amavubi (Wasps).

Before joining the Austria's second division side, he failed to impress in trials with two European first division sides, Toulouse FC in France and the Belgian side Essevee FC.

Nirisarike is the third Rwandan player to be recruited recently by clubs in European leagues after Salomon Nirisarike, who joined Belgium's second league side Antwerp FC in 2012 and Elias Uzamukunda, who joined the French club Cannes in 2008.
