Allan Okello could be a Paradou AC player as early as this weekend if all goes as scripted.
The gifted KCCA youngster leaves for Algeria tomorrow to undergo a medical before completing the anticipated move.
KCCA CEO Anisha Muhoozi confirmed the development to Daily Monitor. “Considering player growth and desires, club and family, we will make the correct decision collectively for the good of all parties,” she said.
Daily Monitor also understands that Okello has already agreed personal terms with the Algerian club, which copy KCCA have in possession. The 2019 Airtel/Fufa Player of Year, Okello, travels after just recovering from illness.
The 19-year-old got Paradou’s attention when they eliminated KCCA from the Caf Confederation Cup late last year.
Okello scored KCCA’s only goal as Paradou overwhelmed them 4-1 in Algiers after the first leg ended goalless in Kampala. However, as Okello - a product of KCCA’s development side - heads north, his colleague Mustafa Kizza returns home.
The left wingback’s move to Moroccan side Hassania Union Sport Agadir has hit a dead end, this newspaper can confirm.
Kizza left for Morocco on Tuesday to undergo a medical before the two clubs could announce but the north African club told KCCA last afternoon they received communication from their FA halting any more transfers.
High sources at KCCA confirmed to us saying “Agadir were notified late that they had exhausted their transfers according to their financial fair play rules.”
Kizza will now meet his agent and agree on way forward, but the player is expected to return to KCCA on a short term contract before they can try elsewhere, most likely Switzerland.
Both Kizza, 20, and Okello missed KCCA’s opening two games of the StarTimes Uganda Premier League second round against Mbarara City and Bright Stars through, according to manager Mike Mutebi, injuries and illness.
The pair were crucial in the club’s two league titles and continental strides under Mutebi.
Agadir, Kizza’s would have been new address, currently occupy a relegation spot with 19 games left to play.
Okello’s imminent destination, Paradou, are 12th on 17 points in the Algerian league but with two games in hand.
