England-born Ugandan goalkeeper Giosue Bellagambi signs first professional contract at Huddersfield Town

​England-born Ugandan goalkeeper Giosue Bellagambi has been handed his first professional contract at Huddersfield Town, Kawowo Sports confirm.

Bellagambi who was born in the United Kingdom is eligible to play for England, Italy and Uganda national teams.

The 18-year-old is among the five players who successfully completed their two-year scholarships at the club with the other players being centre-back duo Tom Bamford and Nassim Kherbouche, full-back Sam Sharrock-Peplow and Jaheim Headley.

"It’s great news that we’ve come to agreements with seven of our players, who are out of contract at the end of the season, to play into July 2020," Huddersfield manager Danny Cowley said via the club's website.

"These are unprecedented circumstances for football and footballers, and I want to thank them for their commitment to the cause at a vital time for the club.

"As we’ve said already, we cannot commit to any future contracts for senior players now; we need to know what division we’re in, and what next season will look like in terms of start date and circumstances.

"There’s an awful lot to play for, for both the club and the players."
