The secondary transfer window is now officially open, and that means once again clubs will be in search of their prime targets, while others will do anything to keep their man especially as we enter the business end of the season.
One such player who once again will be subject to a hefty number of transfer speculations is KCCA’s talisman and reigning Football256 Player of the year Award winner Allan Okello.
The 20-year-old is one of the very much sought after player in the country and the region at large, and his hunt will continue now that he enters his final year of contract at KCCA which expires in January 2021.
But KCCA seems not to be in the rush of selling him as they are still holding on until the right offer for the player is tabled before they can cash in.
According to reliable sources, Okello was subject to a USD 100,000 bid from Tanzanian giants Azam FC, which was rejected by KCCA.
Our sources also reveal that Azam’s CEO Abdulkarim Amin travelled to Uganda during the CECAFA tournament in December to try and work out a deal, but he was frustrated by KCCA’s demand.
KCCA slapped a USD 400,000 price tag on the attacker, half of what they asked for from FC Zurich when the Swiss side wanted to sign Okello five months ago.
With Azam unable to match Okello’s price tag, they effectively pulled out of the deal, but wait on the sidelines as they will be in the race to land him on a free transfer in June.
Then, Okello would have entered the last six months of his contract; if a contract extension or deal to move elsewhere are not agreed to with KCCA FC.
It is not only Okello that they are courting from KCCA, but the Tanzanian side have also inquired about the availability of KCCA left back Mustafa Kizza.
