The club announced the former Kaizer Chiefs defender’s signing on their official Twitter account.
“We are pleased to announce the signing of Ugandan International defender Ivan Bukenya for our next I-League season. Welcome!” Read the club tweet.
Bukenya was set to sign for Proline FC, but he delayed signing the contract after he received offers from India.
The Kampala-born defender went on trial at Bengal and impressed the technical team and was subsequently signed.
Bengal, who are the current Calcutta Football League champions, kick off their league season on January 7, 2017.
